Paper Abstract

For the first time a method for switching between generation of single- and double-scale pulses has been demonstrated in a mode-locked figure-eight NALM-based all-PM-fibre Yb master oscillator by adjustment of two pumps power. Introduction into a F8 configuration of a non-linear amplifying loop mirror with two active media not only ensured relatively high average output power of the master oscillator (> 0.5 W at 22-MHz repetition rate), but also allowed switching laser operation from one pulse type (single-scale with duration of <10 ps) to another - femtosecond clusters with envelope width of 16 ps and sub-pulse duration <200 fs.
