Highly-efficient 1-GHz-repetition-frequency femtosecond Yb3+:KY(WO4)2 laser for super-continuum generation
Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA), Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences, School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh EH14 4AS, UK
We present a 1.024-GHz-repetition-rate femtosecond Yb3+:KY(WO4)2 laser with 61% optical-to-optical efficiency and 69% slope efficiency, generating a supercontinuum of bandwidth 400 nm in silica photonic-crystal fibre. RIN measurements of the laser yielded values <0.1%.
