Paper Abstract

A mode-locked laser system achieves average output power of more than 18 watts, in a single transversal mode, with a pump power of 70 watts. The optical to optical conversion efficiency is about 25%. The output wavelength is 1053 nm and the mode locked frequency is 150 MHz; the pulse width is less than 80 ps. The peak power reaches kilowatts per pulse. The wavelength can be converted into 527nm and 351 nm with a nonlinear conversion.
