Abstract
The analysis of tuning characteristics for parametric amplification in KD*P has shown that the application of KD*P crystals may considerably enhance the possibilities of certain optical parametric amplifiers of both terawatt and petawatt level. For instance, at pumping with a wavelength of (lambda) 3 equals 0.527 micrometers , which is most promising for the creation of such systems, the KD*P-based amplifiers may work far from the degenerate mode, e.g., at (lambda) s- 0.911 micrometers and (lambda) i-1.25 micrometers . For operation at these wavelengths there are currently master oscillator of femtosecond pulses with pulse duration of up to 30 fs. In this paper elements of the system are discussed, and their parameters are optimized.
