Abstract

A 30fs-300J Ti:sapphire laser need an optimized compressor to compress the 8ns/90nm deep chirped long pulse to 30fs. We proposed a compressor design, which reduces the grating number, grating size, vacuum compression chamber cubage, and system complexity by using a divided-compressor structure and an object-image-grating self-tiling method.
