Abstract

A novel all-diode-pumped master oscillator power amplifier system based on Yb:YAG crystal rods has been developed. It consists of a Q-switched oscillator delivering 3 mJ , 6.4 ns pulses at a 10 Hz repetition rate and an additional four-pass amplifier, which boosts the output energy to 220 mJ , while a close to TEM 00 beam quality could be observed. Additionally a simulation of the amplification was written that allows for further scaling considerations.
