Abstract

We report a 50-W average power Yb-doped fiber laser amplifier system. The laser system produces bursts at a minimum rate of 200 kHz, with 1.6 GHz intraburst repetition rate. The total energy delivers in a burst is 250 μJ and the individual pulse energy is about 0.4 μJ. The output pulses are compressed to 270 fs by using two compressor gratings.
