Abstract

We investigate Kerr lens mode locking of Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk laser oscillators operating in the sub-100-fs regime. Pulses as short as 35 fs were generated at an average output power of 1.6 W. These are the shortest pulses directly emitted from a thin-disk laser oscillator. The optical spectrum of the 35-fs pulses is almost 3 times broader than the corresponding emission band of the gain crystal. At slightly longer pulse duration of 49 fs, we achieve an average power of 4.5 W. In addition, 10.7 W are obtained in 88-fs pulses, which is twice higher than the previous power record for ultrafast thin-disk lasers generating pulses shorter than 100 fs. Our results prove that Kerr lens mode-locked Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk lasers are a promising technology for further average power and pulse energy scaling of ultrafast high-power oscillators operating in the sub-100-fs regime.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Overview of sub-170-fs mode-locked thin-disk lasers based on Yb-doped materials [9–17]. The results presented in this article are highlighted with star symbols. The green area spotlights the desired performances of ultrafast oscillators to directly drive applications such as high field science and frequency comb generation.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Overview of the minimum achieved pulse duration from ultrafast oscillators based on the Yb:Lu2O3 gain material in bulk and thin-disk geometries [11,16,24,26–28]. The presented work is highlighted with a star symbol.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Output power (solid) and optical-to-optical efficiency (dashed) as a function of the pump power for a multi-mode linear cavity (MM, output coupler transmission TOC = 1.8%) and a fundamental transverse mode cavity folded over the disk (FM, TOC = 3.6 - 7.6%), thus experiencing two times higher gain; The black solid lines show the linear fits used for the calculation of the slope efficiencies. Inset: near-field mode profile of the laser at 122 W of output power at a TOC of 3.6%.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Schematic of the cavity used for mode locking operation. CM1, convex RoC of 2 m; CM2, CM3 concave RoC of 400 mm; BP, Brewster plate; HA, hard aperture; OC, output coupler. All other mirrors are highly reflective or dispersive depending on the configuration. A difference in the size of the beam profile was between cw and ML operation (data shown for the 35-fs operation).

Fig. 5 (a) Optical spectra of the 35-fs, 49-fs and 88-fs laser configurations. The normalized gain cross section σgain of Yb:Lu2O3 for an inversion level β of 0.3 is shown for reference (data taken from [20]). (b) Intensity autocorrelation traces with fit to the autocorrelation of a sech2. (c) Radio frequency spectrum of the 35-fs pulses measured with a resolution bandwidth RBW of 300 Hz. (d) Sampling oscilloscope trace in 1 ns and (inset) 20 ns for the 35-fs pulse train confirming the single pulse operation of the mode-locked laser. The weak ringing in the signal trace at 0.5 ns is an artefact due to the electronics of the detection setup.
