Abstract

We report on a near-infrared non-collinear optical parametric amplifier (NOPA) based on periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate. The NOPA generates muJ-energy pulses with spectrum spanning the 1-1.7 microm wavelength range, which are compressed to nearly transformlimited 8.5 fs duration by a deformable mirror. By synchronizing this source with a sub-10-fs visible NOPA, we demonstrate an unprecedented combination of temporal resolution and spectral coverage in two-colour pump-probe spectroscopy.
