Abstract

We implement both chirped pulse amplification and divided pulse amplification in the same femtosecond fiber amplifier setup. This scheme allows an equivalent stretched pulse duration of 2.4 ns in a compact tabletop system. The generation of 77 W of compressed average power at 4.8 MHz, together with 320 fs and 430 μJ pulses at a repetition rate of 96 kHz, is demonstrated using a distributed mode-filtering, rod-type, ytterbium-doped fiber. Limitations in the temporal recombining efficiency due to gain saturation inside the fiber amplifier are identified.
