Abstract

We report on a cavity-dumped Yb:YAG thin disk laser with intracavity-frequency doubling to provide pulses in the millijoule energy range at a repetition rate of up to 100 kHz . The maximum average output power at 515 nm was 102 W with pulses of a pulse length of 300 ns . An additional advantage of the presented laser setup is the wide tunability of the pulse duration.
