High energy femtosecond Yb cubicon fiber amplifier.


The generation of cubicon pulses from an Yb fiber chirped pulse amplification system at pulse energies up to 200 microJ is demonstrated. After pulse compression 650 fs pulses with a pulse energy of 100 microJ are obtained, where pulse compression relies on the compensation of third-order dispersion mismatch between the stretcher and compressor via self-phase modulation of the cubicon pulses in the fiber amplifier. Values of self-phase modulation well in excess of pi can be tolerated for cubicon pulses, allowing for the nonlinear compensation of very large levels of dispersion mismatch between pulse stretcher and compressor.
