Abstract

We demonstrated that Yb:YAG single crystal fibers have a strong potential for the amplification of femtosecond pulses. Seeded by 230 fs pulses with an average power of 400 mW, the system produced 330 fs pulses with an average power of 12 W. This is the shortest pulse duration ever produced by a Yb:YAG amplifier. The gain in the single crystal fiber reached a value as high as 30 in a simple double pass configuration.
