Abstract

We report on chirped-pulse amplification in a large-mode-area erbium-doped fiber emitting in a water transparency window. 1.5μJ 605fs pulses are generated at 1.6μm with a repetition rate of 300kHz; this corresponds to an average power of 460mW. Nonlinearities are adjusted on the global system to compensate for the dispersion mismatch between the fiber stretcher and the grating compressor. This new compact and robust source targets medical applications such as surgery in highly scattering corneas.
