dc.description.abstractWe present carrier envelope offset (CEO) frequency detection of a diode-pumped Yb:KGW (ytterbium-doped potassium gadolinium tungstate) laser with a repetition rate of 1 GHz. The SESAM-soliton-modelocked laser delivers 2.2-W average power in 290-fs pulses. This corresponds to a peak power of 6.7 kW and the optical-to-optical efficiency is 38%. With a passive pulse compression the duration is reduced to 100 fs at an average power of 1.1 W. Coherent supercontinuum (SC) generation in a highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is achieved without additional amplification. Furthermore we have demonstrated that pulse compression towards lower soliton orders of approximately 10 was required for coherent SC generation and CEO detection. Additional numerical simulations further confirm these experimental results.
