Abstract
We present a 100 kHz femtosecond amplifier system delivering pulses with a duration of 35 fs and an energy of 7 μJ at 800 nm. The system does not include a stretcher, since the large amount of dispersion accumulated during the amplification process is sufficient to prevent self-focusing. Compensation in all orders is achieved through a combination of a special prism compressor, chirped mirrors, and a liquid-crystal modulator.
