Nonlinear femtosecond pulse compression at high average power levels using a large mode area holey fiber

Nonlinear femtosecond pulse compression at high average power levels using a large mode area holey fiber
We demonstrate that nonlinear fiber compression is possible at unprecedented average power levels by use of a large-mode-area holey (microstructured) fiber and a passively mode-locked thin disk Yb:YAG laser operating at 1030nm. We broaden the optical spectrum of the 810-fs pump pulses by nonlinear propagation in the fiber and remove the resultant chirp with a dispersive prism pair to achieve 18W of average power in 33-fs pulses with a peak power of 12MW and a repetition rate of 34MHz. The output beam is nearly diffraction limited and is linearly polarized.

Abstract

We demonstrate that nonlinear fiber compression is possible at unprecedented average power levels by use of a large-mode-area holey (microstructured) fiber and a passively mode-locked thin disk Yb:YAG laser operating at 1030nm. We broaden the optical spectrum of the 810-fs pump pulses by nonlinear propagation in the fiber and remove the resultant chirp with a dispersive prism pair to achieve 18W of average power in 33-fs pulses with a peak power of 12MW and a repetition rate of 34MHz. The output beam is nearly diffraction limited and is linearly polarized.
