Abstract

We demonstrate the compression of noise-like pulses in an Yb-doped fiber master-oscillator power-amplifier (MOPA). The seed source of the MOPA is an NPR mode locked fiber laser delivering 5.94-ps dissipative soliton pulses with a repetition rate of 37.48 MHz. After amplification in the Yb-doped fiber amplifier, stable noise-like pulses with maximum power of 5 W are obtained. Subsequently a grating pair is used to tailor the spectrum and compensate the dispersion of the amplified noise-like pulses. The pedestal of de-convolution autocorrelation trace is compressed from 6.5 ps to 920 fs. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that the pedestal of a noise-like pulse is compressed to femtosecond region.
