Abstract

We report, to the best of our knowledge, the first mode-locked operation of Yb:YLF gain media at cryogenic temperatures. A saturable Bragg reflector was used for initiating and sustaining mode locking. Once aligned, the system was self-starting and quite robust. Using output couplers in the 10–40% range, 3–5 ps long pulses with an average power as high as 28 W were achieved. The repetition rate was 46.45 MHz, and the corresponding pulse energy and peak power were as high as 602 nJ and 126.5 kW, respectively. The central wavelength of the mode-locked pulses could be tuned in the 1013.5–1019 nm range using an intracavity birefringent filter. The achieved output power performance is two to three orders of magnitude higher than previous room-temperature Yb:YLF systems.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Experimental setup of the diode-pumped SBR mode-locked cryogenic Yb:YLF laser resonator. DM, dichroic mirror; CM, curved high-reflector mirror; f1–f3, pump beam shaping optics; BRF, birefringent tuning filter; OC, output coupler.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. Measured laser output average power versus absorbed pump power for the SBR mode-locked cryogenic Yb:YLF laser. The data are taken using 10%, 20%, and 40% output couplers. The empty markers denote cw or ${q}$ -switched mode-locking regimes, whereas the filled markers represent stable cw mode locking. Inset figure: measured near-field beam profile at the laser output with the 40% output coupler (at 28 W average power level).
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. (a) Measured spectrum and (b) autocorrelation trace for the 3 ps, 262 nJ pulses with 12.2 W of average power taken using the 20% OC.
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. Measured microwave spectrum indicating clean mode locking at 46.45 MHz repetition rate.
Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. (a) Measured spectrum and (b) the autocorrelation trace for the 4.2 ps, 602 nJ pulses with 28 W of average power taken using the 40% OC.
Fig. 6.
Fig. 6. Example spectra from the mode-locked Yb:YLF laser showing tunability of the central wavelength of the laser from 1013.5 to 1019 nm. The measured ECS of Yb:YLF for the ${E}//{a}$ axis and small signal reflectivity of the SBR are also shown.
