Abstract
A new method for the ultrafast rotation of ring-shaped optical lattices based on frequency-chirping of optical pulses was demonstrated in THz regime, which is three orders of magnitude faster than those by the conventional methods. Our optical lattice generator with a spatial light modulator is robust thanks to the 4-f configuration and enables us to flexibly control their rotational symmetry. The generated ultrafast-rotating ring-shaped optical lattices with a rotational frequency of 0.59 THz were successfully boosted from 5 μJ up to 125 μJ by using a home-built 4-pass Ti:sapphire amplifier without any limitation by optical damage to the spatial light modulator.
