We report a fiber amplifier system with an output transform limited pulse duration that is broadly tunable from 400 to 60 fs. We produce <100fs pulses with >200kW of peak power by compensating a significant amount of third-order dispersion. The spectral noise characteristics are also investigated to insure highly stable supercontinuum generation.
