Abstract

Single-pass pumping of a thin disk consisting of an only 50μm thick epitaxial layer of 32at.% Yb-doped KLu(WO4)2 grown on a 0.35mm thick undoped KLu(WO4)2 substrate is demonstrated. The thin-disk laser delivered 9W of continuous wave output power near 1030nm with a slope efficiency of 77%.
