Abstract

We report a frequency doubled green source at 530nm pumped based on an all-fiber, picosecond, single polarization Yb3+-doped fiber MOPA delivering 20ps pulses at user selectable repetition rates of up to 910MHz and an average output power in excess of 100W at 1.06µm. The output of the MOPA was frequency doubled using a LBO crystal. Up to 56 W of green light was generated at a corresponding repetition rate of 227 MHz at an overall conversion efficiency of 56%. The diode-to-green optical power conversion efficiency was 37%
