Paper Abstract

We report the generation of high temporal quality high energy ultra-short pulses from a moderately non-linear fiber chirped pulse amplifier. The system is based on a two amplification stages and delivers 270 fs pulses of 100 μJ energy at a repetition rate of 300 kHz. The excellent temporal quality of the recompressed pulses, down to 1.1 the Fourier limit, allows the production of ~ 340 MW of peak power. The fibre chirped pulse amplifier is design to compensate the nonlinear phase shift accumulated throughout the amplifier stages by third order of dispersion provided by mismatched temporal stretcher and compressor units.
