Ultra-intense, ultrafast lasers are widely used in strong field physics, such as laser wakefield acceleration[2,3], high harmonic generation[4,5] and terahertz radiation. These lasers are currently generated from a Ti:sapphire-based chirped pulse amplification (CPA) system[7–9] or nonlinear crystal-based optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) system[10–12]. Due to the short storage time, Ti:sapphire is typically pumped by frequency-doubled Nd:YAG or Nd:glass solid-state lasers, which results in a bulky and complicated system with high cost. Compared with conventional CPA laser systems, the OPCPA system can obtain a shorter pulse duration and a higher peak power. Its pump laser needs a short pulse duration, a low time jitter, and smooth temporal and spatial distributions because of the intrinsic instantaneous process. Thus, the OPCPA system is more complicated and expensive.
