Robust chirped mirrors

By Omid Nohadani, Jonathan R. Birge, Franz X. Kärtner and Dimitris J. Bertsimas

Abstract

Optimized chirped mirrors may perform suboptimally, or completely fail to satisfy specifications, when manufacturing errors are encountered. We present a robust optimization method for designing these dispersion-compensating mirror systems that are used in ultrashort pulse lasers. Possible implementation errors in layer thickness are taken into account within an uncertainty set. The algorithm identifies worst-case scenarios with respect to reflectivity as well as group delay. An iterative update improves the robustness and warrants a high manufacturing yield, even when the encountered errors are larger tha
