Abstract
High brightness lasers are required for various applications in materials processing. Especially fine cutting and remote welding require high beam quality. Diode end pumped rod lasers are highly efficient lasers operating at high beam quality, but due to thermal induced effects in the laser rod the output power is limited to 10W. The diode endpumped slab laser (INNOSLAB) we have developed is a promising method to scale the output power to the multi-kW range retaining the high beam quality and efficiency of end pumped rod lasers. We will present a laser system with an output power of 1kW. The laser beam is coupled into a 100 m fiber. Compact setup of the laser head, chiller and power supply allows the system to fit in a standard 19" rack.
