Abstract

We report a mode-locked fiber laser that exploits dissipative-soliton pulse shaping along with cladding pumping for high average power. The laser generates 31 nJ chirped pulses at 70 MHz repetition rate, for an average power of 2.2 W . After dechirping outside the laser, 80 fs pulses, with 200 kW peak power, are obtained.
