|Abstract: ||We explored high-energy and high-peak-power pulse generation in large-core multimode fiber amplifiers, achieving what is to our knowledge the highest reported energies, up to 82 mJ for 500-ns pulses, 27 mJ for 50-ns pulses, and 2.4-MW peak power for 4-ns pulses at 1064 nm, using 200-mm-diameter and 0.062-N.A. core Yb-doped double-clad fiber amplifiers. The highly multimode nature of the fiber core was mitigated by|
use of a coiling-induced mode-filtering effect to yield a significant improvement in output-beam quality from M2 25 from an uncoiled fiber to M2 6.5 from a properly coiled fiber, with the corresponding reduction in number of propagating transverse modes from $200 to #20.
