20 February 2012 Chirped pulses sum frequency generation for deep-­UV picosecond pulse shaping
Author Affiliations +
We show by experiments and simulations that properly chirped laser pulses enable efficient and broadband sum frequency generation in nonlinear crystals. We achieved high energy, picosecond deep-UV pulses with spectral width one order of magnitude greater than the acceptance bandwidth of the nonlinear interaction. The broad spectrum supports shaping of ps flat-top deep-UV pulses with short rise- and fall-time, which are optimal for driving high brightness photocathode electron guns.
