Abstract
We propose a Yb:SFAP laser system, using a novel resonator scheme, that will provide over 1 J per pulse output at 100 Hz at high efficiency, in a package far more compact, lower mass and efficient that conventional systems. The high-pulse-energy poweroscillator architecture is especially suited to space platforms where weight, volume, cooling and efficiency are particularly important. The proposed system will enable a 1 J/pulse 100 Hz system with efficiency and compactness far exceeding conventional systems. The efficiency and cost advantages of the Yb:SFAP system together are anticipated to break through the present cost barriers todiode-pumped solid-state lasers in commercial materials processing systems .
