Abstract

We report an all-normal dispersion femtosecond laser based on large-mode-area Yb-doped photonic crystal fiber. Self-starting mode-locked pulses are obtained with an average power of 12W at 84MHz repetition rate, corresponding to 140nJ of chirped pulse energy. These are dechirped to a near transform-limited duration of 115fs. Experimental results are consistent with numerical simulations of dissipative soliton intra-cavity pulse evolution, and demonstrate scaling of 100fs pulses to megawatt peak powers.
