Abstract
We report a high-power chirped pulse amplification (CPA) based on nonlinear amplifying loop mirror (NALM) oscillator and Yb-doped rod-type photonic crystal fiber (PCF). An all-polarization-maintaining NALM mode-locked fiber oscillator was used providing an average power of 9.4 mW, a pulse duration of 5.3 ps at the repetition rate of 21 MHz. After pulse stretching, selection and amplification, an average power of 120 W with the pulse duration of 145 ps at repetition rate of 4.2 MHz has been achieved. The pulse duration is compressed to 14 ps using a pair of reflective gratings coated by gold film. In order to prevent the damage of the gratings, the compressed average power is limited to 51 W. The compressed pulse average power can be further improved by using transmissive gratings coated by dielectric film.
