Abstract

We report on a Kerr-lens mode-locked Yb:YSO lasers for the first time. Pumped by a single-mode fiber laser with high brightness and linear polarization, the Yb:YSO laser can deliver as high as 2 W average power with as short as 95 fs pulse duration at the repetition rate of 137.2 MHz, resulting in the single pulse energy of 14.8 nJ and the peak power of 155.7 kW. This work proves the potential on generation of sub-100 fs pulses with multi-watt level average power with the Yb doped oxyorthosilicates crystals.
