Femtosecond Yb:CaGdAlO4 thin-disk oscillator

Abstract : A mode-locked thin-disk laser based on Yb:CALGO is demonstrated for the first time. At an average output power of 28 W we obtained pulses with a duration of 300 fs and a pulse energy of 1.3 μJ. 197 fs pulses with 0.9 μJ of energy were achieved at an average output power of 20 W. The shortest pulse duration measured in our experiments was 135 fs with a spectrum centered at 1043 nm. The experiments also revealed a very broad tunability from 1032 to 1046 nm with sub-200 fs pulses
