Title: High-Contrast Optical-Parametric Amplifier as a Front End of High-Power Laser Systems

Abstract

A high-contrast preamplifier, based on ultrafast-optical-parametric amplification with a short pump pulse, is demonstrated. The energy gain and the high contrast of this preamplifier make it an ideal candidate as a seed source for high-power laser systems.
