Abstract

Direct amplification of output from chirped pulse oscillator (CPO) to 3.3 W of average power (pulse energy of 118 nJ in 20 ps pulse duration before compression) was achieved in a properly designed cladding pumped large mode area Er-doped fiber. Various configurations of CPO cavity with different FWHM of output spectrum and pulse duration were investigated. Fourier limit compression with 480 fs pulse duration and 32 kW peak power has been obtained for pulses with 14.8 nm FWHM spectrum. Subsequent nonlinear compression in a standard SMF-28 fiber yielded pulses as short as 145 fs.
