On Yb:CaF2 and Yb:SrF2 : Review of spectroscopic and thermal properties and their impact on femtosecond and high power laser performance

Abstract

We present an overview of laser results we obtained with Yb-doped calcium fluoride and its isotype strontium fluoride. In order to study the laser performance in femtosecond and high power regimes, spectral and thermal properties are first discussed including the potential of these crystals at room and cryogenic temperatures. Experimental demonstrations of high-power and ultrashort pulse oscillators and amplifiers are presented and analyzed.
