Abstract
Microjoule pulse energies are achieved from a single stage upconversion fiber amplifier for the first time in this demonstration of chirped pulse amplification using a multimode Tm:ZBLAN fiber. A Ti:sapphire laser system provides the seed pulse for the upconversion fiber amplifier which produces subpicosecond pulse trains with energies as great as 16 (mu) J at repetition rate of 4.4 kHz. The compressed pulse peak power is more than 1 MW, and the pulse is characterized both temporally and spatially.
