Abstract

We present a high-power gigahertz SESAM modelocked Yb:CALGO laser with sub-60-fs pulses. The laser delivers an average output power of 2.95 W at a pulse repetition rate of 1.8 GHz in fundamental modelocking without additional pulse compression or amplification. Stable modelocking with a single pulse per cavity round-trip is confirmed and results in an output peak power of 24.3 kW and a pulse energy of 1.64 nJ. The laser is pumped by a commercial multimode diode laser, which improves the reliability and robustness. This high-power gigahertz laser is expected to enable numerous applications in frequency metrology.

Experimental setup of the 1.8-GHz SESAM modelocked diode-pumped Yb:CALGO laser oscillator: The gain crystal is end-pumped through a dichroic mirror (DCM). The Z-shaped cavity is formed by the DCM, a curved dichroic GTI mirror for dispersion compensation, a flat output coupler with 1.3% transmission and the SESAM placed as the second end-mirror. The intra- and extra-cavity beams are illustrated in red and the pump laser beam in purple. With this cavity design we have two output beams and the quoted output power is the added output power in each beam.

SESAM modelocked and multimode-diode-pumped gigahertz Yb:CALGO laser: (a) pulse duration of 59.4-fs measured with a SHG-autocorrelation, (b) optical spectrum centered at 1059.67 nm and with a FWHM of 25.7 nm, The gigahertz pulse repetition rate is demonstrated with the microwave spectrum shown in (c) and (d) with different spans. RBW: resolution bandwidth of microwave spectrum analyzer.
