Abstract: "We report on a compact efficient high-repetition-rate (> 100 kHz) optically pumped AlGaInAs nanosecond eye-safe laser at 1525 nm. A diamond heat spreader bonded to the gain chip is employed to improve the heat removal. At a pump power of 13.3 W, the average output power at a repetition rate 200 kHz is up to 3.12 W, corresponding to a peak output power of 560 W. At a repetition rate 500 kHz, the maximum average power and peak power are found to be 2.32 W and 170 W, respectively."
