Abstract
An all-fiber-based femtosecond laser featuring a large-core Yb-doped photonic crystal fiber amplifier is proposed. The laser can generate pulse energies in excess of 0.1 mJ while retaining a compact, modular, rugged architecture amenable to rapid field deployment in Laser-Induced-Breakdown-Spectroscopy (LIBS) sensors.
