Abstract

Single-pass pumping of a thin disk consisting of an only 50 μ m thick epitaxial layer of 32 at. % Yb-doped KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 grown on a 0.35 mm thick undoped KLu ( WO 4 ) 2 substrate is demonstrated. The thin-disk laser delivered 9 W of continuous wave output power near 1030 nm with a slope efficiency of 77%.
