Recent advances in femtosecond fiber lasers are described. Self-similar evolution of parabolic pulses in a modelocked laser can be exploited to substantially increase the pulse energy and peak power that can be achieved without wave-breaking. Experimentally, pulse energies as high as 10 nJ and peak powers as high as 80 kW are obtained from Yb fiber lasers operating in the wave-breaking-free regime.
