Paper Abstract

Laser sources of high average power are essential to transfer femtosecond technology to industrial applications. We demonstrate a compact diode-pumped Yb:KGW femtosecond oscillator-Yb:YAG Innoslab amplifier MOPA with nearly transform and diffraction limited 636 fs pulses at 620 W average output power and 20 MHz repetition rate. By cascading two amplifiers an average output power of 1.1 kW and peak power of 80 MW is achieved in a single, linearly polarized beam. The MOPA is operated at room temperature and no CPA technique is used. The specific properties of Innoslab MOPAs are compared with fibers and thin-disks.
