1.2 Ultrafast Laser Physics and Nonlinear Optics

Project coordinators: G. Steinmeyer, M. Schnuerer, T. Nagy


Our activity concerning primary light sources is mostly devoted to the development of optical parametric chirped pulse amplifiers (OPCPA). Currently four major OPCPA systems with unique parameters are under development or have been completed recently.


In order to extend the parameter range of our primary laser sources we undertake intensive development on secondary sources concentrating on two main directions: pulse compression and nonlinear frequency conversion.
