Energy scaling of Kerr-lens mode-locked thin-disk oscillators.
Geometric scaling of a Kerr-lens mode-locked Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator yields femtosecond pulses with an average output power of 270 W. The scaled system delivers femtosecond (210-330 fs) pulsesExpand

Highly-dispersive mirrors reach new levels of dispersion.
A highly-dispersive mirror with the unprecedented group delay dispersion of -10000 fs2 in the wavelength range of 1025-1035 nm is reported. Reproducible production of a coating with such a highExpand

260-megahertz, megawatt-level thin-disk oscillator.
A Kerr-lens mode-locked (KLM) Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator delivering 215-fs pulses with 75-W average power and 1.4-MW peak power at a repetition rate of 260 MHz is presented. Self-starting KLM isExpand

Power-scaling a Kerr-lens mode-locked Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator via enlarging the cavity mode in the Kerr-medium
We report on a purely hard-aperture Kerr-lens mode-locked Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator delivering 230-W, 11.5-μJ, 330-fs (30 MW) in air. To our knowledge this is the highest average power achievedExpand

High power Kerr-lens mode-locking of Yb:YAG and Yb:CALGO thin-disk oscillators
A scaling approach allows reaching 270-W, 14.4-µJ, 330-fs (38 MW) from a KLM Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator, the highest average power of any KLM-oscillator. Progress on applying this concept to theExpand

Approaching the Few-Cycle Pulse Regime with Thin-Disk Oscillators
Nonlinear fiber compression of pulses generated by a Kerr-lens modelocked thin-disk oscillator to 15-fs at 0.5-μJ, 20-W is reported. Additional spectral broadening in bulk sapphire leads to a FourierExpand

Investigation of temporal compression of few-cycle pulses from an ultrabroadband, multi-mJ optical parametric amplifier
Summary form only given. High-energy, ultrashort pulses in the few-cycle regime are of great interest as drivers of intense attosecond-pulse sources [1]. Noncollinear optical parametric chirped pulseExpand
