Abstract

A diode-pumped, cryogenically cooled Yb : LuLiF 4 regenerative amplifier has been developed for the first time to our knowledge. A chirped-seed pulse was amplified and compressed in the regenerative amplifier, simultaneously, which generated 6 mJ , 13 ps pulses at 999 nm in wavelength without a pulse compressor. Simultaneous lasing at 999 and 1024 nm , respectively, was demonstrated, which could be used for different frequency generation in the terahertz region.
