Title VULCAN ultra-short development fibre-grating pulse compression
Abstract In this report we analyze the feasibility of implementing a fiber-grating compression scheme at the output of the Nd:YLF oscillator used in the VULCAN CPA Nd:glass laser. This process has previously demonstrated that it can efficiently compress pulses to a few tens of femtoseconds. Based on calculations, we determine the optimum parameters for our present system, and perform several experiments in order to measure the compressed pulse widths. The importance of achieving such short pulse lengths lies on the high peak powers that become available at the output of the system.
