Paper Abstract

We report on our latest results in the development of high-energy, long-cavity Chirped Pulse Oscillators (CPOs). Our concept allows the generation of ultrashort laser pulses at MHz repetition rates with a pulse duration of less then 50fs and an energy approaching the μJ-level directly out of an oscillator. Thus, our unique approach completely avoids the need for any additional amplification stages. This paper is, to the best of our knowledge, the first demonstration that laser pulses with a peak power exceeding 18MW can be generated directly out of a femtosecond oscillator.
