Ultrafast thin disk lasers achieve higher pulse energies and average power levels than any other modelocked oscillators. The key components of SESAM modelocked thin disk lasers are used in reflection, which is an advantage for the generation of ultrashort pulses with excellent temporal, spectral and spatial properties. We review the development and report latest results. We report on successful scaling of a Yb:Lu2O3 thin disk laser to 141 W average power, setting a new record for mode-locked laser oscillators. Such performance is important for a growing number of applications such as material processing or driving experiments in high field science.
