Abstract

A novel method of compressing laser pulses to femtosecond duration using tenuous plasma as the nonlinear medium for parametric conversion of the energy of a long higher-frequency laser beam into the energy of a short low-frequency laser pulse is presented. This approach uses the free-electron plasma as a nonlinear medium for parametric conversion of the energy of a long laser pump into a much shorter counter-propagating seed.
