We report watt-level average output power near 1300 nm from an all-fiber ultrafast optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier. A compressed output pulse duration of ∼300 fs is achieved. Multiphoton imaging of a variety of samples carried out with this light source shows a good signal-to-noise ratio. With the demonstrated imaging capability, we believe that this high-power ultrafast laser source addresses a key need in deep tissue multiphoton microscopy.
