Abstract

We report the amplification of 10–100-pJ semiconductor diode pulses to an energy of 158 µJ and peak powers >100 kW in a multistage fiber amplifier chain based on a single-mode, large-mode-area erbium-doped amplifier design. To our knowledge these results represent the highest single-mode pulse energy extracted from any doped-fiber system.
