1-mJ energy, 1-MW peak-power, 10-W average-power, spectrally narrow, diffraction-limited pulses from a photonic-crystal fiber amplifier.


We report on a diode-pumped master-oscillator/fiber-amplifier (MOFA) system consisting of a passively Q-switched, single-frequency Nd:LSB microchip laser that seeds a dual-stage Yb-doped fiber amplifier. A large-core, single-mode photonic crystal fiber was used for the final amplifier. The MOFA generated 1062nm wavelength, 1-ns long, ~10kHz repetition-rate, diffraction-limited pulses of energy >1mJ, peak power >1MW, average power >10W, and spectral linewidth ~9 GHz.
