Paper Abstract

Advanced, high-brightness photoinjectors are required for the next generation of linear accelerators and free-electron lasers. Current photoinjector lasers suffer from complexity due to the use of multiple amplifier stages to achieve the desired pulse energy and have issues with power scaling. In this work, we used a liquid-nitrogen-cooled, Yb:YAG, mode-locked laser master-oscillator/power-amplifier as a high-average-power laser source for laser photoinjector applications. Such a laser can provide average powers of 93 W with repetition rates of 1 MHz (93 μJ per pulse). The 10-ps pulses from the oscillator were amplified in a four-pass cryo-Yb:YAG amplifier.
