We report on our first results of a dispersion-managed monolithic polarization-maintaining ultrafast Thulium-doped fiber oscillator. The design incorporates only commercially available polarization-maintaining components and emits linearly polarized light with a polarization extinction ratio of over 17 dB . The observed optical pulse spectra with up to 10 nm width centered at 1961.5 nm beyond the water absorption lines support sub-1 ps pulse duration. The simple linear configuration and the wide spread availability of the used low cost polarization-maintaining fiber components makes the presented oscillator a valuable concept for an environmental stable seed source.

In this paper, we will discuss the performances of a 4-pass diode-pumped 4-active-mirrors laser amplifier. Numerical simulations along with experimental characterization paves the way to reach 1 J at 10 Hz pulse rate at 1053 nm. Both Nd :glass and Nd :Lu :CaF2 amplifier medium performances will be compared in this amplifier.

We present the first results concerning synthesizer-driven high-harmonic generation that reach the water-window region. This approach holds the promise of offering greater spectral tunability in the generation of isolated attosecond pulses and at the same time of achieving higher photon-flux, required for attosecondresolved soft X-ray transient absorption experiments.

Extreme learning machines (ELMs) are a versatile machine learning technique that can be seamlessly implemented with optical systems. In short, they can be described as a network of hidden neurons with random fixed weights and biases, that generate a complex behaviour in response to an input. Yet, despite the success of the physical implementations of ELMs, there is still a lack of fundamental understanding about their optical implementations. This work makes use of an optical complex media to implement an ELM and introduce an ab-initio theoretical framework to support the experimental implementation. We validate the proposed framework, in particular, by exploring the correlation between the rank of the outputs, 𝑯, and its generalization capability, thus shedding new light into the inner workings of optical ELMs and opening paths towards future technological implementations of similar principles.
