Abstract
Frequency conversion of an ultrafast 810 nm Ti:sapphire laser has produced 15 mJ, 165-fs pulses at 405 nm with an energy conversion efficiency of 35%. Upon tripling the fundamental to 270 nm, an energy of 0.8 mJ is obtained. Unconverted 405-nm light is used to generate an ultrafast supercontinuum in water that extends from 200 nm to 600 nm. The system operates at a 5 Hz repetition rate, and is useful for applications in deep ultraviolet pump-probe ultrafast spectroscopy.
