A 100 W amplified (75 W compressed) femtosecond (650 fs) Yb-fiber chirped-pulse-amplification system is demonstrated using broadband chirped-volume Bragg gratings (CVBGs) for the stretcher and compressor. With a 75% compression efficiency, the CVBG-based compressor exhibits an excellent average power handling capability and indicates the potential for further power scaling with this compact and robust technology.
