Abstract

We report on the power scaling to 103 W of a 1.1 μ m continuous-wave Yb 3 + -doped silica fiber laser incorporating a point-by-point (PbP) fiber-Bragg grating inscribed directly into the active core using 800 nm femtosecond laser pulses. The spectrum of the laser exhibited a narrow linewidth that broadened to 260 pm at 103 W . The output was frequency doubled using an 11 mm long periodically poled MgO : LiNbO 3 crystal to generate 2.1 W of green with an internal conversion efficiency of 10% at high power and 0.81 % W at low power.
