Overview

Driving low efficiency nonlinear processes, such as high harmonic generation laser-driven THz generation, requires high pump energies. For applications of this type, Light Conversion produces OPCPA systems delivering up to 50 mJ pulse energy, combined with exceptional energy and CEP stability, as well as temporal contrast, owing to the advanced front-end technology and favourable properties of the OPCPA process.

Light Conversion and Ekspla consortium has recently set a new standard in the field by delivering a 5.5 TW, 1 kHz few cycle OPCPA system to ELI-ALPS. Besides the record-setting output parameters, the system also exhibits excellent short-and-long-term stability and reliability. More information about this system can be found in: https://doi.org/10.1364/OE.25.005797.

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.
