Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a directly diode-pumped Yb:KYW femtosecond chirped pulse laser amplifier with > 1 mJ pulse energy and pulse repetition rates higher than 5 kHz. We extracted up to 1.8 mJ at a pulse repetition rate of 2 kHz and 1.5 mJ at a pulse repetition rate of 5 kHz. After a high efficiency grating compressor having >80% transmission, we measured a pulse duration of 480 fs. The M2 value was better than 1.2.
