Paper Abstract

We have developed all fiber format pulsed lasers with bandwidth-limited emission and over 12kW peak power for the 1064nm and 1550nm wavelength ranges. The master oscillator followed by power fiber amplifier configurations were employed with operational frequencies from 100kHz to over 2MHz range and 2ns pulse duration. The pulse duration remains the same for all repetition rates. The designs of the low NA core fibers deployed ensure stable single spatial mode emission with 12μm and 14μm mode field diameter (MFD) for 1064nm and 1550nm correspondingly. The output emission bandwidth was below 0.1nm and pulse-to-pulse energy stability better than 1% were measured for all operational frequencies and output powers. Single mode fiber design of the fiber amplifiers ensured diffraction-limited output beam quality with M2 less than 1.1. New lasers can be used for nonlinear frequency conversion to generate emission in the visible and UV parts of optical spectrum as well as in other applications.
