Abstract [en]

Since the early 1990's, a substantial effort has been devoted to the development of quasi-phased-matched (QPM) nonlinear devices, not only in ferroelectric oxides like LiNbO3, LiTaO3 and KTiOPO4 (KTP), but also in semiconductors as GaAs, and GaP. The technology to implement QPM structures in ferroelectric oxides has by now matured enough to satisfy the most basic frequency-conversion schemes without substantial modification of the poling procedures. Here, we present a qualitative leap in periodic poling techniques that allows us to demonstrate devices and frequency conversion schemes that were deemed unfeasible just a few years ago. Thanks to our short-pulse poling and coercive-field engineering techniques, we are able to demonstrate large aperture (5 mm) periodically poled Rb-doped KTP devices with a highly-uniform conversion efficiency over the whole aperture. These devices allow parametric conversion with energies larger than 60 mJ. Moreover, by employing our coercive-field engineering technique we fabricate highlyefficient sub-μm periodically poled devices, with periodicities as short as 500 nm, uniform over 1 mm-Thick crystals, which allow us to realize mirrorless optical parametric oscillators with counter-propagating signal and idler waves. These novel devices present unique spectral and tuning properties, superior to those of conventional OPOs. Furthermore, our techniques are compatible with KTA, a KTP isomorph with extended transparency in the mid-IR range. We demonstrate that our highly-efficient PPKTA is superior both for mid-IR and for green light generation-as a result of improved transmission properties in the visible range. Our KTP-isomorph poling techniques leading to highly-efficient QPM devices will be presented. Their optical performance and attractive damage thresholds will be discussed.

Abstract [en]

We present the performance of an all polarization-maintaining Erbium-doped fiber laser mode-locked by a multilayer graphene based saturable absorber. The cavity incorporates a Martinez-type compressor, based on a transmission grating, which allows for continuous tuning of the net cavity dispersion as well as spectral filtering. By adjusting the dispersion and the spectral bandwidth, we could operate the laser in the soliton, the dispersion managed soliton and the absorber-limited pulse regimes. The pulse durations from the laser ranged between 338 fs to 2.1 ps and the laser could be operated at nearly constant output powers in the anomalous and the normal dispersion regimes. We also conducted stability analyses based on dispersive Fourier transform measurements in the different operating regimes. Comparison of the collected spectra reveals that the soliton regime had the best overall stability.

Abstract [en]

A high-energy, ns, narrow-linewidth optical parametric oscillator and amplifier system based on large-aperture periodically poled Rb:KTP is presented. The 2 A mu m seed source is a singly resonant OPO locked with a transversely chirped volume Bragg grating, allowing a wavelength tuning of 21 nm and output linewidth of 0.56 nm. A maximum output energy of 52 mJ and conversion efficiency of 36% was obtained from the amplifier for a pump energy of 140 mJ. The high-energy and the robust and narrow dual-wavelength spectra obtained make this system an ideal pump source for difference frequency generation-based THz generation schemes.

Abstract [en]

Ultrafast sources in the mid-IR are indispensable research tools for spectroscopic and medical applications and can also potentially be used to generate attosecond pulses. We investigated a route to directly achieve self-compressed supercontinuum pulses with an octave-exceeding spectrum extending into the mid-IR by employing self-defocusing nonlinearities obtained through cascaded chi((2)) interactions in domain-structured ferroelectrics. A model was developed based on a single-wave nonlinear envelope equation that accounts for cascaded chi((2)) nonlinearities, the native Kerr response from the third-order nonlinear polarization, and the delayed Raman response. Experimental validation of the model was carried out by using an in-house fabricated, periodically poled, Rb-doped KTiOPO4 crystal with a period of 36 mu m. A supercontinuum spectrum spanning from 1.1 to 2.7 mu m was achieved, as well as self-compression down to 18.6 fs, from a 128 fs pump pulse at 1.52 mu m. Using the actual pump pulse and sample parameters, excellent agreement was reached between the model and the experimental results, thus proving the validity of the model. As periodically poled KTiOPO4 can be obtained with large apertures, this approach is energy scalable and hence promising for future development in the field.
