Abstract

We present the characterization of the carrier envelope offset frequency of 490 MHz femtosecond Yb-fiber ring laser. After amplification and compression, 1.7 W 90 fs pulses were produced for octave-span-spectrum generation from 600 nm to 1300 nm. More than 30 dB S/N ratio carrier envelope offset frequency signal was measured through a quasi-common-path interferometer.
