We propose a fiber stretcher for stretching the high-energy ultrashort pulses which require high dispersion and large mode area to secure high stretching ratio and for ensuring distortionless pulses. In this line, we suggest a novel design of photonic quasi-crystal fiber (PQF) to achieve the desired high normal group velocity dispersion (GVD) of 1000 ps2/km at 1.06 μm and inner core effective mode area as 35 μm2. These unique properties have been exploited to achieve a high stretching ratio (>105) as well as less nonlinearity, which, in turn, results in a distortionless fiber stretcher for an Yb-doped high-energy ultrafast fiber laser system based on chirped pulse amplification. © 2006 IEEE.
