The recent progress in femtosecond laser technology is currently driven by the prospect of fully diode pumped systems, which promise the eventual replacement of the well-established Ti:sapphire laser in the field of ultrafast optics. Apart from more traditional diode-pumped solid-state lasers, fiber-based systems have received an increasing amount of attention due to the uniquely compact assemblies possible with fiber lasers. However, to date fiber lasers have replaced Ti:sapphire-based systems only in areas, were low power levels are required, such as the injection seeding of regenerative amplifiers. Here, we show that fiber lasers can also produce power levels and pulse widths that are sufficient for the pumping of optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) and amplifiers (OPAs).
