Paper Abstract

We present recent progress in development of a compact regenerative laser amplifier based on the Yb:YAG thin-disk technology delivering up to 100 mJ picosecond pulses with a repetition rate of 1 kHz, designed for seeding a kW-class multipass amplifier for industrial and scientific applications. System utilizes two laser heads pumped at zero-phonon line (968.825 nm1) by stabilized high-power pump diodes operated in pulsed regime. The concept is based on the CPA technique where seed pulses produced by fiber oscillator at 1030 nm are stretched and compressed by use of transmission gratings.
