Pulse compression paper published in Scientific Reports

Mike is a co-author on the paper “Direct compression of 170-fs 50-cycle pulses down to 1.5 cycles with 70% transmission,” as a part of an international team led by Bruno Schmidt (few-cycle, Inc.) and Luca Razzari (INRS). The article was published in Scientific Reports (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-30198-y). This result is an important step on our path towards generating single-cycle laser pulses from our Yb laser amplifier, and isolated attosecond pulses through high-order harmonic generation!
