Pulse compression in plasma: Generation of femtosecond pulses without CPA

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Laser pulses can be efficiently compressed to femtosecond duration when a smaller-frequency short pulse collides with high frequency long pulse in rare plasma, absorbing most of its energy. The mechanism of short pulse amplification is nonlinear superradiance.
