Abstract

We investigate power-scaling of a Kerr lens mode-locked (KLM) Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk laser (TDL) oscillator operating in the sub-100-fs pulse duration regime. Employing a scheme with higher round-trip gain by increasing the number of passes through the thin-disk gain element, we increase the average power by a factor of two and the optical-to-optical efficiency by a factor of almost three compared to our previous sub-100-fs mode-locking results. The oscillator generates pulses with a duration of 95 fs at 21.1 W average power and 47.9 MHz repetition rate. We discuss the cavity design for continuous-wave and mode-locked operation and the estimation of the focal length of the Kerr lens. Unlike to usual KLM TDL oscillators, an operation at the edge of the stability zone in continuous-wave operation is not required. This work shows that KLM TDL oscillators based on the gain material Yb:Lu2O3 are an excellent choice for power-scaling of laser oscillators in the sub-100-fs regime, and we expect that such lasers will soon operate at power levels in excess of hundred watts.

Fig. 2 Schematic of the Kerr lens mode-locked Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk laser oscillator. (inset) Beam profile in mode-locked operation and M2 beam quality factor. CM1, convex radius of curvature (ROC) of 2 m; CM2 and CM3, concave ROC of 250 mm.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Cavity design in continuous-wave and mode-locked operation shown for the sagittal plane. The mode radius is defined as the 1/e2 decay of the maximal intensity. In mode-locked operation, the effect of the Kerr lens in the Kerr medium (KM) is estimated for an intracavity peak power of 33 MW. Gray dotted lines indicate the position of the cavity components. In mode-locked operation, the mode radius on the disk (DISK1, DISK2) targets an 80% overlap with the pump spot (blue dotted). The different mode radii on the disk (red dotted) originate from the ROC of the disk. Cavity lengths in the simulation are a = 700 mm; b = 448 mm; c = 799 mm; d = 610 mm; e = 267mm; f = 300 mm. The distance between curved mirror CM2 and the KM is 149 mm. The hard aperture (HA, gray solid) is placed 30 mm before the cavity end mirror. In the experimental setup, the uncertainty of each length measurement towards the disk is ± 3 mm. The uncertainty of each length measurement between all other cavity components is ± 1 mm. OC, output coupler.

Fig. 4 Impact of the distance between the curved mirrors CM2 and CM3 in CW operation on the mode radii on the disk (DISK1; DISK2), in the Kerr medium (KM) and on the hard aperture (HA). Vertical black dashed lines indicate the edge of the stability zone for a stable cavity. The gray dotted line indicates the length e after the cavity optimization.
