Abstract

We report on a single-pass device that efficiently converts the broadband near-infrared output from a femtosecond fiber laser into a narrow spectrum in the visible. With fan-out poled Mg O : Li Nb O 3 we obtain subpicosecond, continuously tunable pulses in the 520 700 nm range. Conversion efficiencies as high as 30% are observed at typical pump power levels of 30 mW , corresponding to average output powers up to 9.5 mW . The specifications of our device are ideal for applications in confocal microscopy and frequency metrology.
