Abstract

We have developed a pulsed Yb:YAG thin disk green laser for pumping
a 100 kHz and 10 W femtosecond laser. We optimized numerically and
experimentally the open duration of the acousto-optic (AO) Q-switcher
and the internal SHG method, generating stable output energy at a
100 kHz repetition rate. We demonstrated a 515 nm output power of
over 80 W with a pulse-to-pulse stability of less than 1% RMS with
an LD power to green power conversion efficiency of 24%. With the
developed green laser, we obtained 16 W of a Ti:sapphire laser in
a cavity dumped mode.
