Abstract

A monolithic fiber chirped pulse amplification system that generates sub-500 fs pulses with 913 μJ pulse energy and 4.4 W average power at 1.55 μm wavelength has recently been demonstrated. The estimated peak power for the system output approached 1.9 GW. The pulses were near diffraction-limited and near transform-limited, benefiting from the straight and short length of the booster amplifier as well as adaptive phase shaping for the overall mitigation of the nonlinear phase accumulation. The booster amplifier employs an Er 3+-doped large mode area high efficiency media fiber just 28 cm in length with a fundamental mode (LP01) diameter of 54 μm and a corresponding effective mode area of 2290 μm2.
