Paper Abstract

We report the first experimental demonstration of a high-power Ti:sapphire laser pumped by an efficient, compact and cost-effective continuous-wave (cw) fiber-laser-green source at 532 nm. The green source is obtained by direct singlepass second-harmonic-generation (SHG) of a Yb-fiber laser in MgO:sPPLT crystal, providing 11 W of green power in TEM00 spatial profile. The Ti:sapphire laser is continuously tunable across 743-970 nm and can deliver an output power up to 2.7 W with a slope efficiency as high as 32.8% under optimum output coupling of 20%. The laser output has a TEM00 spatial profile with M2<1.44 across the tuning range and exhibits a peak-to-peak power fluctuation below 5.1% over 1 hour.
