Abstract

Frequency doubling of an erbium–ytterbium-fiber master-oscillator–power-amplifier system is demonstrated. Simultaneous amplification and pulse compression in multimode erbium–ytterbium-doped fibers produces high-quality near-diffraction and near-bandwidth-limited 100-fs pulses at a wavelength of 1.62µm with an average power of 230 mW at a repetition rate of 52 MHz. Periodically poled LiNbO3 allows for frequency doubling with a conversion efficiency of 51%, producing near-bandwidth-limited 105-fs pulses with an average power of 117 mW and a pulse energy of 2.3 nJ at a wavelength of 810 nm.
