Abstract

A series of experiments aimed at determining the maximum pulse energy that can be produced by a femtosecond fiber laser is reported. Exploiting modes of pulse propagation that avoid wave breaking in a Yb fiber laser allows pulse energies up to 14 nJ to be achieved. The pulses can be dechirped to sub-100-fs duration to produce peak powers that reach 100 kW. The limitations to the maximum pulse energy are discussed.
