Direct amplification of output from chirped pulse oscillator (CPO) to 3.3 W of average power (pulse energy of 118 nJ in 20 ps pulse duration before compression) was achieved in a properly designed cladding pumped large mode area Er-doped fiber. Various configurations of CPO cavity with different FWHM of output spectrum and pulse duration were investigated… CONTINUE READING
