Abstract

A fiber-based chirped-pulse amplification (CPA) system with an active feedback loop for pulse shaping is experimentally demonstrated. A spectral processor is used in conjunction with a frequency-resolved optical gating measurement to produce high-quality pulses. Spectral phase and intensity shaping are utilized to generate a clean, high-contrast, transform-limited pulse with 15 dB pedestal suppression in the pulse wing tails, resulting in a five time increase in peak power of the CPA system.
