Abstract

We report a multimode, double-clad, Yb-doped fiber amplifier that produces diffraction-limited, 0.8-ns pulses with energies of 255 μJ and peak powers in excess of 300 kW at a repetition rate of ∼8 kHz . Single-transverse-mode operation was obtained by bend-loss-induced mode filtering of the gain fiber.
