Abstract

Amplification of an axially-symmetric, doughnut-shaped radially-polarised beam at 1030nm in a diode-bar-pumped double-pass thin Yb:YAG slab amplifier architecture without degradation in polarisation purity is demonstrated. Preliminary experiments yielded a small-signal gain of 9dB for 50W of incident pump power while maintaining the polarisation purity of the seed beam.
