Features

  • Multi-TW peak power pulses produced at up to 1 kHz repetition rate
  • Pre-pulse contrast exceeding 1012 achievable without complex and lossy nonlinear pulse cleaning techniques
  • Sub-220 mrad CEP noise and <1 % energy stability maintained throughout full day of operation
  • Pulse duration down to < 9 fs

Overview

Applications like high energy attosecond pulse generation, generation of high harmonics from solid targets, and laser electron acceleration all benefit from few-cycle pulse durations and excellent pulse contrast while requiring multi-millijoule pulse energy. Our most powerful systems, scalable to multi-TW peak powers at kHz repetition rate while maintaining few-cycle pulse durations, will fit the most demanding requirements, while providing stability and reliability unprecedented for systems of this scale.

4.5 TW, 1 kHz OPCPA for ELI-ALPS

Light Conversion and EKSPLA Consortium have won the public procurement tender of the ELI-ALPS facility for the design and construction work for the SYLOS laser system. To our knowledge, the SYLOS laser system will be able to generate four times higher peak power pulses than the current state of the art at 1 kHz rep rate. The system is based on Light Conversion’s Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifiers driven by Light Conversion’s femtosecond (fs) laser PHAROS and EKSPLA’s picosecond laser.

PHAROS pumps two fs OPAs: the first (FS-OPA) produces passively CEP stabilized pulse at 1.3 µm used for generation of CEP stable WLC, while the second (FS-NOPA) amplifies WLC in 700 – 1000 nm range providing high contrast seed pulse for the subsequent OPCPA stages. The pulse amplified to 50 mJ of energy at an 850 nm central wavelength will be compressed in a sequence of glass blocks and chirped mirrors down to 10 fs pulse duration.
