Abstract

A white-light continuum is used to seed a two-stage optical parametric amplifier pumped by the second harmonic of a regeneratively amplified Ti:sapphire laser system operating at 824 nm. Microjoule energies are achieved in the signal branch, which is tunable from 472 to 785 nm. Near-transform-limited sub-200-fs pulses are attainable over the vast majority of the tuning range.
