To obtain a large molecular second-order nonlinearity the long conjugated polyene chromophores provide one of the most effective pathways for efficient charge derealization between donor and acceptor groups. The CLP chromophores consist of pi-conjugated hexatriene bridge between dialkylamino or methoxy electron ...

We investigated the crystal engineering of organic configurationally locked polyene (CLP) crystals by co- crystallization and tailor-made auxiliaries. This offers more design feasibilities as one or both constituent molecules can be modified to fit one another and to acquire the desirable macroscopic properties in the solid state.

However, the theoretical limits for the macroscopic second-order nonlinearities in organic crystals are still far from being achieved.

  • 1.5 kW Incoherent Beam Combining of Four Fiber Lasers Using Adaptive Fiber-Optics Collimators

    We demonstrate the incoherent beam combining (BC) of four high-power single- mode fiber lasers. Adaptive fiber-optics collimators (AFOC) of 0.5 kW-level are developed to correct the tip/tilt-type phase errors among beamlets. The maximum deflection angle of the AFOC is about 0.29 mrad. A stochastic parallel gradient descent algorithm is employed as the tip/tilt control strategy. The tip/tilt control makes four separate laser beams overlap with each other in the far-field, and the average of normalized power-in-bucket increases from 0.171 in open loop to 0.798 in closed loop when 1.5-kW total output power is achieved. The precise tracking ability and control accuracy of this BC system are investigated. Experimental results expose that thermal-blooming effect disturbs BC seriously when the total output power is up to kW-level, which could be mitigated by inducing air flow near the laser output.

  • Toward Waveform Nonlinear Optics Using Multimillijoule Sub-Cycle Waveform Synthesizers

    Waveform nonlinear optics aims to study and control the nonlinear interactions of matter with extremely short optical waveforms custom-tailored within a single cycle of light. Different technological routes to generate such multimillijoule sub-optical-cycle waveforms are currently pursued, opening up unprecedented opportunities in attoscience and strong-field physics. Here, we discuss the experimental schemes, introduce the technological challenges, and present our experimental results on high-energy sub-cycle optical waveform synthesis based on (1) parametric amplification and (2) induced-phase modulation in a two-color-driven gas-filled hollow-core fiber compressor. More specifically, for (1), we demonstrate a carrier-envelope-phase (CEP)-stable, multimillijoule three-channel parametric waveform synthesizer generating a >2 -octave-wide spectrum (0.52-2.4 μm). After two amplification stages, the combined 125-μJ output supports 1.9-fs FWHM waveforms; energy scaling to >2 mJ is achieved after three amplification stages. FROG pulse characterization of all three second-stage outputs demonstrates the feasibility to recompress all three channels simultaneously close to the Fourier limit and shows the flexibility of our intricate dispersion management scheme for different experimental situations. For (2), we generate CEP-stable 1.7-mJ waveforms covering 365-930 nm (measured at 1% of the peak intensity) obtained from induced-phase modulation in a two-color-driven gas-filled hollow-core fiber. Using custom-designed double-chirped mirrors and a UV spatial light modulator will permit compression close to the 0.9-fs FWHM transform limit. These novel sources will become versatile tools for controlling strong-field interactions in matter and for attosecond pump-probe spectroscopy using VIS/IR and XUV/soft-X-ray pulses.

  • Adaptive optics for ultrashort pulse manipulation

    Shaping of femtosecond light pulses is typically performed in the frequency domain, by manipulation of the pulse spectral intensity and phase. One tool for phase control uses a deformable mirror in the Fourier plane of a 4-f stretcher. In this work we show the ability of adaptive optics to shape femtosecond pulses. By including the shaper and the characterization block in a closed loop, it is possible to correct spectral phase distortions accumulated in an optical chain in few automatic iterations.

  • Atom optics: basics and applications

    Matter wave optics has a long tradition spanning over many decades starting with electron and ion optics. These techniques now find commercial applications in microscopy and lithography. Neutron optics contributed many beautiful experiments that tested many fundamental principles in quantum mechanics. Over the last decade the field of atom optics has been developed. In particular the availability of narrowband tunable laser sources has opened up the addressing of the internal electronic degrees of freedom of the atoms and as a result, the manipulation of their trajectories. The dissipative nature of the atom light interaction is used for laser cooling methods e.g. to collimate atomic beams to a high brightness whereas the dispersive nature of the interaction is used to realize different atom optical components like lenses, beam-splitters and mirrors. Consequently atom optics is now at a stage where applications of those elements in more complex systems are studied. An overview of recent developments is given. This includes atom interferometry and atom lithography experiments and experiments with a quasi 2D gas of ultra cold atoms in planar waveguides. Future directions and applications are outlined.
