Coherence control in a λ-type three-level system having an ultra-fast (<10 fs) dephasing time has been demonstrated. The ultra-fast temporal resolution has been demonstrated by ultra-broadband and intense radiation, yielding terahertz Rabi frequencies. By changing the interaction phase between the excited coherences and the broadband light field, the coherence was controlled in the double-chirped-pulse pumping scheme.

    We present some results concerning the propagation of intense femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser pulses in matter and especially in air. We show that the supercontinuum created during the propagation preserves the spectral coherence of the initial pulse and both together form a chirped-white light...

The OPG is self-seeded with a fraction of its own signal output,...
