CW and modelocked operation of an Yb:(Sc,Y,Lu)2O3 thin-disk laser

Abstract

Recent SESAM modelocked thin disk lasers have achieved average powers > 140 W [1] and pulse energies > 25 µJ [2], which is higher than for any other ultrafast oscillator technology. Many experiments in areas such as high field laser science require pulse durations in the sub-100-fs regime, which has not been demonstrated with thin disk lasers so far. The… (More)
