Paper Abstract

A high-power Er:Fiber amplifier design allows for generation of <10 fs pulses with 0.5 MW peak power from a 1.5 micron frequency comb using robust telecom technology in a turn-key package. Chi-2 and Chi-3 nonlinear optical processes result in milliwatt and multi-milliwatt infrared generation through intrapulse difference frequency generation, high contrast few-cycle pulse generation through cross phase modulation, and harmonic generation through cascaded quadratic nonlinear processes. Applications such as dual-comb electric field sampled become more accessible with the milliwatt mid-infrared radiation from our source.
