Abstract
The compensation of nonlinear phase shifts by dispersion in femtosecond fiber amplifiers is explained. Contrary to previous understanding, a chirped-pulse fiber amplifier with mismatched stretcher and compressor can out-perform a matched system when the pulse acquires a significant nonlinear phase shift.
