320MW peak power from a 6ps pulse using SCF Taranis technology. 

The work was performed as part of the EU funded Razipol project by researchers from Fibercryst, Laboratoire Charles Fabry, Institut d’Optique Graduate School, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay and Lumentum.


A two-stage master-oscillator power-amplifier (MOPA) system based on Yb:YAG single-crystal-fiber (SCF) technology and designed for high peak power is studied to significantly increase the pulse energy of a low-power picosecond laser. The first SCF amplifier has been designed for high gain. Using a gain medium optimized in terms of doping concen- tration and length, an optical gain of 32 dB has been dem- onstrated. The second amplifier stage designed for high energy using the divided pulse technique allows us to gen- erate a recombined output pulse energy of 2 mJ at 12.5 kHz with a pulse duration of 6 ps corresponding to a peak power of 320 MW. Average powers ranging from 25 to 55 W with repetition rates varying from 12.5 to 500 kHz have been demonstrated.

FIBERCRYST will attend the World of Photonics exhibition in Munich from June 22nd to June 25th. Please, visit us at our booth Hall B3 #126. The team will be pleased to present you new products, new services and new performances of the TARANIS technology.

Laser HEGOA (from EOLITE Company) amplified with a Taranis laser gain module provides 28 MW peak power and 100W average  

Non CPA amplification of 27 ps pulses in an Yb:YAG single-crystal fiber Taranis module is demonstrated with a record 28 MW peak power and 100 W average power with very good beam quality. No damage on coating and nonlinear effect have been observed. The association of fiber amplifiers and Yb:YAG single-crystal fiber booster leads to a very exciting combination of both high average power (100 W) and high energy (up to 700 μJ) picosecond pulses with a tunability from kHz to multi MHz repetition rates and a perfect beam quality.

The performance of the Nd:YAG Taranis-TEC module has been upgraded 

The maximum pumping level of this module was increased from 35 W to 60 W.
This new level of pumping enables high average power and high peak power amplification without using water in the laser system.

TARANIS Femto Second Amplifier : 1mJ, 380fs, M²<1.1 @ 10kHz 

Demonstration of a versatile femtosecond power amplifier using a Yb:YAG TARANIS module operating from 10 kHz to 10 MHz : With a pump power of 75 W, up to 30 W of average power (10MHz) is generated from the double-pass power amplifier.

At a repetition rate of 10 kHz, an output energy of 1 mJ is obtained after recompression. In this configuration, the pulse duration is 380 fs, corresponding to a peak power of 2.2 GW with M2 = 1.1
