Paper Abstract

We describe unprecedented performance level from a femtosecond fiber laser system optimized for precision industrial micro-machining. The monolithic fiber chirped pulse amplifier chain enables system output of 215 μJ pulse energy, ~510 fs pulse duration and 16 W average power. We reveal the critical enabling technology to reach this unprecedented pulse energy level, the salient operating principles for the full chirped pulse amplification system, and the key experimental performance data for the laser system.
