Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a femtosecond Yb:YAG InnoSlab laser amplifier producing 450-μJ pulse energy at 500kHz pulse repetition rate. Ultrafast operation at high energy and high average power could be obtained without the use of chirped pulse amplification on the power amplifier end. The laser setup consists of a compact and robust femtosecond fiber based seed laser producing up to 4μJ pulses with pulse durations down to 260fs. Pulses from the seed source are directly amplified to high pulse energy and average power in an optimized Innoslab amplifier. This laser source is ideally suited for large scale industrial applications requiring high average power ultrashort pulses for high throughput and productivity.
