Extreme Chirped Pulse Amplification (X-Cpa) Using Semiconductor Gain Media
The concept of X-CPA using a semiconductor gain media with <1ns energy storage lifetime and CFBG with large dispersion is introduced. The pulse stretching and recompression is demonstrated with a pair of CFBGs (2000ps/nm). In addition, the gain saturation behavior without and with pulse stretching is demonstrated experimentally and numerically. The results showed that future high pulse energy, ultrafast mode-locked laser systems will be achievable from an all-semiconductor gain media platform.
