Ultrafast laser sources are one of the main achievements of the past decades. Finding new avenues to obtain higher average powers and pulse energies from these sources is currently a topic of important research efforts both for scientific and industrial applications. SESAM modelocked thin-disk lasers are one of the most promising laser technology to reach this goal from table-top systems: recently, average powers of 275 W and pulse energies of 80 μJ were demonstrated directly from a modelocked oscillators without additional external amplification. In this presentation, we will review the current state-of-the art of such table-top systems and present guidelines for future kilowatt-class systems.
