Abstract

An intense sub-10 fs Ti:sapphire laser system has been developed for investigating ultrafast nonlinear phenomena. Sub-10 fs, multimillijoule pulses were obtained from a laser system consisting of a conventional chirped-pulse amplifier and a subsequent pressure-gradient hollow fiber pulse compressor, without any additional amplification. We describe the design and performance of the laser system together with high-order harmonic generation in the sub-10 fs regime as an example of one of the applications that were made possible by using this laser system.
