Pumping of highly-nonlinear microstructured fibers with zero-dispersion around the pump wavelength of a 50kW peak-power picosecond Yb-fiber laser allowed extensive polychromatic picosecond operation down to 525nm in all-fibre format. Spectral power densities over 1mW/nm and potential of further pulse compression to femtoseconds is demonstrated.
