Abstract

High power supercontinuum generation with 70 W average output power in a nonlinear ytterbium-doped fiber amplifier is demonstrated using all-normal dispersion, all-fiber master oscillator power amplifier configuration. The supercontinuum covers from 1064 nm to beyond 1700 nm with spectral flatness better than 12 dB and 67.3% optical to optical conversion efficiency. The almost uniform spectral power density across the whole continuum is more than 70mW/nm and the nanosecond bursts output have an effective peak power of 82.7 kW.
