Abstract

We demonstrated a high-peak-power, single-frequency, single-mode, linearly polarized, nanosecond all-fiber laser in master oscillator power amplifier configuration. The pulsed seed was generated by modulating a single-frequency continuous wave laser at 1064 nm. The short pulse width (3.2ns) of the pulsed seed prevented the onset of stimulated Brillouin scattering in the 10 μm-core single-transverse-mode polarization-maintaining ytterbium-doped fiber of the main amplifier. In order to compensate self-phase modulation-induced spectral broadening, a phase modulator was employed to control the phase of the pulsed seed, and the linewidth of the output pulses were reduced from 1.22GHz to 185MHz at the peak power of 1.47 kW.
