Abstract

We report operation of the first high average power Nd: glass active-mirror amplifier, a scalable laser device that may be used to configure solid-state laser systems with high average power output into the kilowatt regime. An extractable average power of over 120 W was achieved at the device laser material fracture limit and at a repetition rate of 5 Hz.
