23 November 2016 Top Downloaded paper in Optics Letters

ICFO’s Attoscience and Ultrafast Optics group has most downloaded paper in OSA compilation The Optical Society of America (OSA) is an important reference for the optics and photonics community, and publishes a number of topical journals, including Optics Letters, which comes out a twice monthly, offering rapid dissemination of new results in all areas of optics with short, original, peer-reviewed communications.

In order to keep the optics and photonics community up-to-date on key research in this area, OSA has collated some of the most downloaded articles in this topic area over the past year from Optics Letters.

In this compilation, a paper by ICFO researchers Matthias Baudisch, Benjamin Wolter, Michael Pullen, and Michaël Hemmer, led by ICREA Prof. at ICFO Jens Biegert entitled “High power multi-color OPCPA source with simultaneous femtosecond deep-UV to mid-IR outputs” was the top downloaded paper. This study, which described a femtosecond multi-color optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier (OPCPA) with simultaneous outputs from the deep-UV to the mid-IR with optical synchronization, was also highlighted in the Spotlight for Optics review section of the OSA journals in September of this year.
