Abstract
We present CPA-free linear amplification of 6:3 ps pulses in Ho:YLF crystals up to 100 μJ pulse energy at 10 kHz repetition rate. The seed pulses at a wavelength of 2:05 μm are provided by a Ho-based all-fiber system consisting of a soliton oscillator and a subsequent pre-amplifier followed by a free-space AOM as pulse-picker. Considering the achieved pulse peak power at MW-level, this system is a powerful tool for efficient pumping of parametric amplifiers addressing the highly demanded mid-IR spectral region. In detailed numerical simulations we verified our experimental results and discuss scaling options for pulse duration and energy.
