Brons, Jonathan; Pervak, Vladimir; Fedulova, Elena; Bauer, Dominik; Sutter, Dirk; Kalashnikov, Vladimir; Apolonskiy, Alexander; Pronin, Oleg and Krausz, Ferenc (2014). Energy scaling of Kerr-lens mode-locked thin-disk oscillators. Optics Letters, 39 (22), pp. 6442-6445.


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) pulses with a peak power of 38 MW. These values of average and peak power surpass the performance of any previously reported femtosecond laser oscillator operated in atmospheric air.
