Paper Abstract

High-average-power, high-repetition-rates picosecond-pulsed regenerative ytterbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Yb:YAG) laser amplifiers were developed. The architecture used in the amplifiers, which are named as thin-rod, has a unique cooling scheme like slab lasers and also has a unique pumping scheme like photonic crystal fiber lasers, is suitable for high-average power Ytterbium lasers. This architecture also has high gain characteristics which is appropriate for the regenerative spectral and pulse shaping on high-repetition-rate, ultrashort-pulse amplifications.
