Paper Abstract

We proposed and demonstrated pre-chirp managed amplification (PCMA), in which the seeding pulse was nonlinearly amplified such that the amplified spectrum was substantially broadened. By properly pre-chirping the seeding pulse, the amplified pulse can be compressed with the duration much shorter than the transform-limited duration allowed by the seeding spectrum. Using an Yb-doped rod-type large-pitch fiber as the power amplifier, PCMA has enabled us to generate 75 MHz, ~60 fs, linearly-polarized pulses with >100-W average power.
