Abstract
We demonstrate a quasi-continuous wave laser amplifier with a peak output power of 6.8 kW pumped by an industrial thin-disk laser. A high slope efficiency of 84 % has been obtained within a duty cycle of 10 % at a signal wavelength of 1071 nm. For cw-pumping we measured a maximum output power of 985W. The amplifier fiber had a step index profile with a core diameter of 45μm and a pump core diameter of 120μm. A signal to ASE peak ratio of 48 dB could be determined.
