Here, 200 fs 6 mJ pulses from a cw diode-pumped Yb, Na : CaF 2 amplifier are spectrally broadened in an Ar- or Ne-filled hollow-core fiber and recompressed to 20 fs (Ar) and 35 fs (Ne) using a prism pair. The results of spectral broadening and phase measurement are in excellent agreement with numerical modeling based on the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The longer laser wavelength of 1030 nm permits favorable energy scaling for the hollow-fiber technique compared to ultrafast amplifiers operating at 800 nm .
