Abstract
Coherent combination applied to state-of-the-art femtosecond fiber CPA systems has recently opened the route towards high energy and average power laser systems. The ~2 mJ, 340 fs, 196 W (100 kHz) pulses of such a system are coupled to an argon-filled hollow-core fiber for spectral broadening via self-phase modulation. Subsequent compression in a chirped mirror compressor leads to ~1 mJ, 45 fs, 96 W pulses. Under different conditions 580 µJ, 26 fs, 11.6 GW, 135 W (250 kHz) pulses are achieved. This is an unprecedented combination of average power and pulse energy.
