17 May 2018 All-fiber pulse shaper for adaptive dispersion compensation in industrial lasers
Author Affiliations +
We report on industrial-grade femtosecond Yb fiber lasers with >100μJ pulse energy and <300fs pulse duration using a tunable all-fiber pulse shaper. The rugged, compact phase modulator is a lossless addition to the standard chirped-pulseamplification scheme. The automated multichannel phase control across the optical bandwidth enables generation of near transform-limited pulses at the laser output, improves unit-to-unit reproducibility of laser pulse characteristics, and reduces laser build time.
