I will present work on hybrid fiber/bulk systems employing non-linear amplifiers to reach near and mid-IR wavelengths to obtain high peak and average powers, with <100 femtosecond pulse durations. These systems have a wide range of uses from biotech imaging techniques, hard X-ray generation, and industrial/medical micromachining. I will illustrate our specific designs for pushing the limits on femtosecond fiber laser technology, mating it with solid state lasers, and extending these systems to meet the needs of cutting edge science.
