Paper Abstract

A femtosecond fiber system based on nonlinear chirped-pulse amplification is investigated. It is the first investigation on pulse properties from all-normal-dispersion fiber laser after amplification. Nonlinearities due to fibers are carefully managed. The system generates up to 5-μJ pulses, and delivers near diffraction-limit beam (M2 < 1.1), polarization extinction ratio (40 dB) and polarization extinction ratio (36 dB).
