Abstract
In the past decade, the Thin Disk laser design was very successful as a high power laser design for cw lasers with good beam quality and high efficiency. Also pulsed lasers based on Thin Disk amplifiers achieved comparable high average power, but mostly with medium pulse energies. Latest results show that the thin disk still has not reached the scaling limits, neither in cw operation nor in pulsed operation.
