Fiber-based optical-parametric chirped-pulse amplification is reported at 1 μm in a microstructured fiber in the femtosecond regime. The signal has been highly stretched by an Öffner triplet and then amplified with an all-fiber, pulsed-pump, fiber optical-parametric amplifier. More than 30 dB gain has been achieved over 8.3 nm , and the amplified signal has been recompressed.
