Chirped Pulse Amplification: review and prospective from diffractive optics [Early Posting]
It is well-known that Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA) technique is awarded by 2018 Nobel Physical Prize to Mourou and Strickland. The compression and stretch using gratings is the essence of CPA technique for amplifying femtosecond laser pulse. It seems less introduced to the public that there are also other structures for compression and stretching of femtosecond laser pulses using other diffractive gratings, such as doubled-density gratings, deep-etched gratings. Therefore, from the view of diffractive optics, CPA technique is reviewed with different approaches and experimental implementations which are not only useful for a more comprehensive retrospective overview of CPA, but also for the prospective of the CPA technique in the future.
