Abstract

We report on a thin-disk multipass amplifier for ultrashort laser pulses delivering an average output power of 1105 W. The amplifier was seeded by a Trumpf TruMicro5050 laser with a power of 80 W at a wavelength of 1030 nm, pulse duration of 6.5 ps, and repetition rate of 800 kHz. The energy of the amplified pulses is 1.38 mJ with a duration of 7.3 ps. The amplifier exhibits an optical efficiency of 44% and a slope efficiency of 46%. The beam quality was measured to be better than M2=1.25.
