We report the development of a bismuth-doped fiber master oscillator power fiber amplifier system. The system operates at 1177 nm , producing 28 ps pulses at 9.11 MHz repetition rate, with an output power of 150 mW and a peak pulse power of 580 W . We subsequently frequency double the output, resulting in a picosecond pulsed visible source operating at 588.5 nm , with a maximum average output power of 13.7 mW .
