Paper Abstract

We report on an optical parametric amplification system which is pumped and seeded by fiber generated laser radiation. Due to its low broadening threshold, high spatial beam quality and high stability, the fiber based broad bandwidth signal generation is a promising alternative to white light generation in bulky glass or sapphire plates. As pump source we propose the use of a high repetition rate ytterbium-doped fiber chirped pulse amplification system.
