Abstract

We report on stable stretched-pulse generation with a pulse duration (at FWHM) 180fs at a central wavelength of 1560 nm with an average output power of 30 mW at a repetition rate of 11.3MHz (with the signal-to-noise ratio at a fundamental frequency 59dB) with an Allan deviation of a pulse repetition frequency of 5.75·109 for a 1 s interval and a relative intensity noise of <101dBc/Hz<101dBc/Hz (30–1000 kHz). This corresponds to a <14.7kW maximum peak power and a <2.6nJ maximum available pulse energy obtained immediately from the highly nonlinear all-fiber laser resonator.
