Abstract

We investigate power scaling of ultrashort-pulse enhancement cavities. We propose a model for the sensitivity of a cavity design to thermal deformations of the mirrors due to the high circulating powers. Using this model and optimized cavity mirrors, we demonstrate 400 kW of average power with 250 fs pulses and 670 kW with 10 ps pulses at a central wavelength of 1040 nm and a repetition rate of 250 MHz. These results represent an average power improvement of one order of magnitude compared to state-of-the-art systems with similar pulse durations and will thus benefit numerous applications such as the further scaling of tabletop sources of hard x rays (via Thomson scattering of relativistic electrons) and of soft x rays (via high harmonic generation).

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Schematic of the experimental setup. PD, photodiode; HR, highly reflective.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Thermal sensitivity of three bow-tie cavities over their entire stability range. The measured values (marker points) were fitted to the calculated sensitivities (solid lines) using the coating absorption factor acoat as a single free parameter, yielding excellent agreement.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Increase in the beam radius on one cavity mirror with respect to the circulating power. The straight lines are linear fits. The slope (given in mm/MW) is reduced by more than one order of magnitude when employing ULE substrates for the highly reflective mirrors.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Linecuts of the cavity mode at low power (left panel) and at 670 kW (right panel) with corresponding Gaussian fits (solid lines). At high power, there is a deviation from a purely Gaussian shape due to resonant coupling to higher-order Gauss–Hermite modes.
