Abstract

A high-power sub-50 fs diode-pumped Yb:CALGO laser oscillator is demonstrated. The peak power achieved for 45 fs pulses directly from the oscillator was 1.7 MW. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest peak power in the sub-50 fs pulse regime that has ever been produced directly from any diode-pumped Yb-ion-doped laser oscillator to date. The shortest generated pulses were 38 fs long with 187 kW of peak power.
