Abstract

A study of chirped-pulse amplification in the presence of large nonlinear phase shifts (as large as 12 π ) and finite gain bandwidth is presented. Numerical simulations that include the effect of nonlinearity, group-velocity dispersion, higher-order dispersion, and finite gain bandwidth predict the spectral signature of the interplay of nonlinearity with gain shaping. Experimental results obtained for up to 0.4 μ J pulse energies from a Yb fiber amplifier agree with the numerical calculations.
