10 April 1995 Chirped dielectric mirrors for dispersion control in femtosecond laser systems
Author Affiliations +
Optical thin film structures exhibiting high reflectivity and nearly constant negative group- delay dispersions, or optionally superimposed higher-order dispersions over frequency ranges beyond 80 THz are presented. This attractive combination makes these special laser mirrors well suited for intra- or extracavity dispersion control in broadband femtosecond laser systems. We address design issues and the principle of operation of these novel devices. Spectrally resolved white-light interferometry with high time and spectral resolution was used to measure the dispersion of the deposited mirrors. Experimental results on the operation of femtosecond laser systems utilizing dispersion compensating mirrors are given.
