Abstract

A high-pulse-energy, prismless, Kerr-lens mode-locked, extended cavity Ti:sapphire laser is demonstrated with double-chirped mirrors and a multiple-pass cavity. The laser operates at 5.85-MHz repetition rate and generates pulse energies as high as 150 nJ with 43-fs pulse duration, corresponding to peak powers of 3.5 MW directly from the laser.
