Abstract

We report on an 888 nm pumped passively mode-locked TEM 00 Nd : YVO 4 oscillator providing 56 W of average power at a repetition rate of 110 MHz with 33 ps pulse duration, further amplified to 111 W in a 52% optical efficiency single-pass amplifier stage, maintaining beam quality at M 2 = 1.05 . Frequency doubling in a LiB 3 O 5 crystal generated up to 87 W at 532 nm , while a third harmonic power of 35 W was achieved in a nonoptimized tripling configuration, corresponding to 80% and 33% conversion efficiency.
