Description/Abstract

High-power visible laser sources have a diverse range of applications. For the continuous-wave operating regime the most popular approach for generating visible output is via intracavity frequency doubling in a 'bulk' solid-state laser. However, this approach is limited by the effects of heat generation to relatively modest power levels. Fiber lasers have a geometry that is relatively immune to thermal effects and hence offer the prospect of much higher power in the visible regime. Unfortunately, the technique of intracavity second harmonic generation is not well-suited to fiber lasers due to their high resonator losses.
