Abstract.

A novel double-pass noncollinear optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier based on an Yb3+-doped passively mode-locked fiber laser has been demonstrated in this paper. The signal was double-pass amplified in a single nonlinear crystal by a long pump pulse, and the signal and pump pulses of each pass were completely phase matched in the plane of the maximum effective nonlinearity. Net saturated gain of 2×106 was achieved and the superfluorescence was suppressed by increasing the overlap time between the signal and pump pulses.
