Paper Abstract

A proposed method, called "eXtreme Chirped Pulse Amplification(X-CPA)", to overcome the limitation of small storage energy of semiconductor optical amplifiers is demonstrated experimentally and theoretically. Results show an efficient energy extraction, a nonlinear suppression, and an excellent optical signal-to-noise ratio. In addition, we built an all-semiconductor X-CPA system using a highly dispersive chirped fiber Bragg grating which possesses 1600ps/nm with 6nm bandwidth at 975nm which generates sub-picosecond optical pulses with >kW record peak power output at 95MHz.
