High-power single-stage single-crystal Yb:YAG fiber amplifier for radially polarized ultrashort laser pulses

Abstract : We report on a single-stage high-power amplification of a radially polarized mode-locked laser beam in a single-crystal fiber (SCF) amplifier. The seed beam was amplified by a factor of 5.0 to an average output power of 66.3 W. The pulse duration of the amplified pulses was measured to be 909 fs at a repetition rate of 40.7 MHz, corresponding to a pulse energy of 1.63 \upmuJ and a resulting pulse peak power of 1.58 MW. The output beam showed a very high quality of the doughnut-shaped intensity distribution and furthermore a high radial polarization purity.
