Description/Abstract

We demonstrate a powerful diode-pumped blue laser source, consisting of a 7W diode at 807nm that pumps a Nd:YAG laser giving 1.6W with good beam quality at 1123nm, and a thulium-doped upconversion fiber laser. The maximum output power achieved at 481nm is 230mW. We also describe the behavior of a reversible loss which is generated in the fluoride fiber during high power operation
