Abstract

We report a high power fiber amplifier based on nonlinear chirped-pulse amplification (NCPA). To manage the nonlinearity, pulse shaping is introduced by self-phase modulation in the fiber stretcher with the help of spectral filtering. The third-order dispersion is compensated for by the nonlinear phase shift in the NCPA. With optimization, the system can output 382 fs pulse duration with 20 W average power at 1 MHz repetition rate. The long-term average power fluctuation is measured to be 0.5% in 24 h, and the beam quality factor (M2) is 1.25.
