Abstract
Comparative analysis of optimal scheme of non-collinear optical chirped-pulse parametric amplification of fewcycle femtosecond pulses from Ti:Sa laser in LBO and DKDP crystals pumped by picosecond pulses up to petawatt level is presented. A flexible code, based on the extended model of parametric amplification, which takes into account the large set of effects such as saturation, phase self-modulation, influence of beam divergence, thermal effects, and amplification of spontaneous emission was realized. A way of creating nearly 1 PW system based on LBO crystals with transform-limited pulse duration about 9 fs has been demonstrated. Comparison between DKDP and LBO crystal showed that the latter is much better for OPCPA petawatt system design than DKDP.
