19 February 2018 Distortion-compensated multifocusing of ultrashort pulse beams using a cascade optical system
Author Affiliations +
We propose a cascade optical system for multifocusing ultrashort pulse beams. In this system, diffractive and refractive subsystems that are optically coupled in cascade correct chromatic aberrations, a phase plate compensates for angular dispersions, and material dispersions are removed by pre-chirping the input pulse. Achromaticity of the system is essential for simultaneous compensation of spatio-temporal pulse distortions. We designed a system by applying the aberration correction conditions derived from an ABCD-matrix analysis. The designed system was evaluated with 20-fs pulses by characterizing the transmitted pulses in beam width and pulse duration to verify the proposed distortion compensation scheme. This technology enables high-throughput ultrafast laser processing.
