Abstract

We report on a passive cavity-enhanced Yb-fiber laser frequency comb generating 230 MW of peak power ( 3 kW of average power) at a 136 MHz pulse repetition rate. The intracativy peak intensity of 3 × 10 14 W cm 2 for the 95 fs pulse is sufficient to ionize noble gases, such as Xe, Kr, or Ar. The laser system is based on a mode-locked Yb-fiber similariton oscillator in conjunction with a cladding-pumped chirped-pulse fiber amplifier. After recompression, 75 fs duration pulses at a 13.1 W average power are obtained. These pulses are then coherently added inside a passive ring cavity by controlling the fiber oscillator’s pulse repetition rate and carrier-envelope offset frequency. This system is well suited for studying high-field phenomena at very high pulse repetition rates.
