130 W, 180 fs ultrafast Yb-doped fiber frequency comb based on chirped-pulse fiber amplification.Opt Express. 2020 Feb 17; 28(4):4817-4824.OE
We report on a high-power fiber optical frequency comb consisting of a 250-MHz mode-locked fiber laser and a three-stage cascaded fiber chirped-pulse amplification system. After power scaling, the group velocity dispersion and third-order dispersion, generated in fiber stretcher and amplifiers, are compensated by a grism compressor, outputting a 132-W, 180-fs pulse train. The repetition rate and carrier-envelope offset frequency are locked to a Rb clock with the standard deviations of 1.07 and 0.87 mHz, corresponding to the fractional instability of 8.3×10-13 and 1.35×10-19, respectively. Moreover, we investigate the noise characteristics at high average powers, presenting a low-noise property of this high-power fiber OFC.
