A solid-core photonic-crystal fiber (PCF) with an effective mode area of 20 μ m 2 is used to demonstrate the generation of sub- 100 - kW , 30 70 fs wavelength-tunable solitons within a wavelength range of 1300 1800 nm at a repetition rate of 18 MHz . An energy of 2.9 nJ per pulse is achieved for a 35 fs soliton PCF output centered at 1770 nm . Our numerical analysis supports experimental findings and suggests that frequency-shifted solitons in solid-core PCFs can be scaled up to a submegawatt level of peak powers.
