Abstract

We report on a high-power third-order dispersion managed amplification system that delivers 33-fs pulses of 93.5 W at a repetition rate of 55 MHz. A pair of grisms are used as the pre-chirper for optimizing the third order dispersion (TOD) to group velocity dispersion (GVD) ratio. Detail experiments show that the use of a grsim pre-chirper significantly enhances the quality of the compressed pulses. We demonstrate that the third order dispersion of both the amplifier and the compressor can be compensated for by the grisms. Furthermore, the nonlinear phase shift introduced by spectral asymmetry during amplification can be restrained. This type of scheme, applied in our experiment, can be used for further development of a high power laser with ultrashort pulse and wide spectrum.

Fig. 1 Setup of high-power Yb-doped fiber amplifier system. ISO, isolator; LD, laser diode; WDM, wavelength division multiplexer; YDF, Yb-doped fiber; PCF, photonics crystal fiber; MM LD, multi-mode laser diode; DM, dichroitic, mirror.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 The measured (a) spectral intensity and (b) the temporal intensity (red solid) of the compressed pulse from pre-amplifier, TBP: time-bandwidth product. (c) Measured output power of the self-similar amplifier. The maximum output power of 124 W corresponds to optical to optical conversion efficiency of 61%. (d) Recompressed pulse duration and spectral bandwidth as a function of the compressed output power.

Fig. 3 Results from numerical simulations showing temporal and spectral evolution along the fiber amplifier with different TGRs: (a) and (d) 3 fs, (b) and (e) 0 fs, (c) and (f) −3 fs.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 The measure temporal envelopes (blue solid), and calculated traces of transform-limited pulses (green dash) at 68-W output power varies with different pre-chirping ratios: (a) −0.3 fs, (b) 0 fs, (c) 0.2 fs, and (d) 0.5 fs. TGR: TOD to GVD ratio.
