Paper Abstract

The goal of this contribution is to provide a guideline for Kerr-lens mode-locking (KLM) of thin-disk oscillators. This includes cavity design, hard and soft-aperture optimization, handling of thermal effects in intra-cavity optics as well as methods of average power and energy scaling. The main differences and similarities between mode-locking of Ti:sapphire bulk and Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillators are presented.
