Abstract
The combination of broadly tunable solid-state lasers and the technique of chirped pulse amplification has made it possible to produce energetic, femtosecond pulses capable of focused intensities > 1018 W/cm2. In addition, these lasers, which have multi-terawatt peak power capability, can be designed in very compact and robust configurations. Further, the average power capability of solid-state chirped pulse amplification sources can now exceed 1 W, as compared to the 10 mW average power limitation of previous femtosecond lasers.
