Ultrafast laser systems find application as versatile tool in industry and science. Ultrafast laser systems based on Ti:sapphire – the workhorse in ultrafast science – operate typically at kHz repetition rates and benefit from the available broad gain bandwidth for the direct generation of sub 100-fs pulse durations. However, thermal effects in the gain medium due to a high quantum defect...
