The design ideas of thin disk lasers will be explained in detail. Experimental results for continuous wave operation and for pulsed operation show the capability for building high power lasers with high efficiency and good beam quality, simultaneously. Modelling the thin disk laser behaviour shows the possible power and energy scalability.
