Paper Abstract

We present an Yb-CALGO thin-disk laser in continuous regime. In a slightly multimode configuration we obtain up to 29.5W of average power, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 40% and an optical-to-optical efficiency of 32%. We then design a monomode cavity, and achieve 25W of average power. The tuning range of the laser emission was from 1018 to 1052nm. In a Q-switch regime, we obtain more than 1 mJ at 100 Hz repetition rate, and 4.5W at 10 kHz repetition rate.
