We demonstrated a carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stabilized chirped-pulse amplifier system. This amplifier system is composed of grating based pulse-stretcher and compressor, a regenerative amplifier and a multi-pass amplifier. We employed a new pulse-pick-up method to select CEP stabilized seed pulses. This pulse selection method is different from established practice which is based on pulse train timing, but is based on CEP of seed pulse. We measured amplitude-to-phase noise conversion coefficient of microstructure fiber and evaluated the additional out-of-loop error of carrier-envelope offset (CEO) control. We also investigated the effect of beam pointing of the measured fringe shift in self-referencing spectral interference method.
