Ultrafast thin-disk laser (TDL) oscillators provide higher intracavity pulse energy, average power, and peak power levels than any other femtosecond laser oscillator technology. They are suitable for driving extreme nonlinear interactions directly inside the laser oscillator. High harmonic generation (HHG) driven inside ultrafast TDL oscillators is a very recent approach for the generation of...

Ultrafast lasers have revolutionized research in fundamental physics, chemistry and biology as well as industrial applications. A great number of experiments benefit from the development of Yb-based high-power femtosecond laser sources. These systems typically include a low-power mode-locked oscillator followed by amplifier stages relying on fiber, slab or thin-disk technologies. In many cases,...
