Abstract

Milli-Joule energy and 600-femtosecond Yb-laser pulses were delivered in several meter Kagome hollow-core-photonic-crystal-fibers in robustly single-mode fashion. Self-compression to 50fs, and intensity-level of petawatt/cm2 were achieved. Free focusing-optics laser-micromachining is demonstrated.
