Abstract
Rotary disk laser technology enables high-power nonlinear optics and laser machining. Due to the wavelength dependence of laser-material interaction, the ability to scale laser power across the spectrum is always in great demand in laser processing of materials. Rotary disk laser technology has enabled high-power nonlinear optics by being able to produce in excess of 200 W in single-mode Q-switched laser power at 1 micron. This breakthrough has led to the power scaling of single-mode visible lasers at 515 nm to 88 W and single-mode UV lasers at 343 nm to 53 W which have set power performance record at their respective wavelengths. In this paper, we will present the results of the rotary disk laser sources in the UV, the visible and the infrared. We will also present record-breaking results in dicing and scribing of silicon, single crystal sapphire and PCBs, and in hole drilling of stainless steel.
