Abstract
A femtosecond thin-disk Yb:YAG oscillator in both the anomalous and the normal dispersion regime is demonstrated. Both regimes are realized with practically the same resonator configuration. The power scaling potential of the anomalous and normal dispersion regimes is analyzed both theoretically and experimentally. The recipe to obtain Kerr-lens mode-locking (KLM) in the thin-disk configuration is presented here and oscillator characteristics as well as start-up difficulties are described. The oscillator stability in terms of output power, beam pointing and sensitivity to back reflections is measured and corresponds to the level of commercial systems.
