ABSTRACT
We report the generation of tunable femtosecond pulses in the 800–850 nm range. These pulses were obtained by generating a femtosecond continuum and selectively amplifying a portion of that continuum. The amplified femtosecond infrared pulses thus obtained were then compressed to a duration of 9 fs by a fiber followed by a grating and prism sequence.
