Paper Abstract

Rotary disk laser has a very efficient thermal management approach that uses physical motion of the gain medium in a diode-pumped solid state laser. The benefits of rotary disk lasers over conventional bulk solid state lasers are high efficiency, power scalability and high peak power pulsed operation in a single-mode output beam. We have generated 72.8 W of TEM00 Qswitched output power at 50% slope efficiency in a crystalline Yb-YAG rotary disk laser.
