    Abstract

    A high peak power all-fibre pulsed source at 1.53 μm, based on
    an amplified Q-switched fibre laser is presented. Peak powers higher
    than 2 kW and pulsewidths of ~20ns at repetition rates up to 1 kHz are
    demonstrated. Pumped with a single compact pump source (MOPA), this
    device constitutes a very powerful field pulse generator
