Abstract

A new type of compact chirped-pulse-amplification circuit for high-power amplification of femtosecond pulses in an optical fiber is demonstrated. This circuit is based on a novel pulse compressor, chirped-period quasi-phase-matching gratings in electric-field-poled lithium niobate. The main advantages of this circuit are simplicity, the small number of components, compactness, and wavelength conversion of Er-doped fiber output to the technologically important 780-nm wavelength region.
