Abstract

We report on a simple scheme to precisely control carrier-envelope phase of a nonlinear-polarization-rotation mode-locked self-started Yb-fiber laser system with an average output power of 7W and a pulse width of 130 fs. The offset frequency was locked to the repetition rate of 64.5MHz with a relative linewidth of 1.4MHz by using a self-referenced feed-forward scheme based on an acousto-optic frequency shifter. The phase noise and timing jitter were calculated to be 370 mrad and 120 as, respectively.
