Abstract

We report on the study of direct amplification of femtosecond pulses in an 80 μ m core diameter microstructured Yb-doped rod-type fiber amplifier in the nonlinear regime. The system includes a compact single grating compressor for the compensation of the small dispersion in the amplifier. With a 1250 line mm (l/mm) grating-based compressor, pulses as short as 49 fs with 870 nJ pulse energy and 12 MW peak power are obtained. Alternatively, the use of a 1740 l mm grating allows the production of higher quality pulses of 70 fs , 1.25 μ J pulse energy, and 16 MW peak power.
