Abstract

A compact diode-pumped actively Q-switched Yb:KGW laser is demonstrated with an optical-to-optical efficiency of 50%. In a 3-mirror laser cavity configuration output power of 12.2 W with repetition rate up to 50 kHz and pulse duration of 10–24 ns was obtained. The maximum pulse peak power of 70 kW was achieved. The laser output beam profile was Gaussian up to maximum pump powers with M2 factor less than 1.2.
