Abstract

The spectral-resolved cross-correlation technique of shot-to-shot timing error measurement for low repetition rate high-energy ultrafast pulses was proposed. The proposed method was used to demonstrate the active stabilization of amplified pulse timing for a kHz regenerative amplifier. A diffraction grating and a photodiode pair was used to construct real time monitoring system of timing jitter. It was found that changing the amplifier cavity length cancelled out the differential signal resulting in the stabilization of arrival timing of amplified pulses. The analysis suggested that controlling the cavity length reduced timing jitter from 5 femtosecond to 0.6 femtosecond.
