We report a frequency-doubled green source at 530 nm pumped based on an all-fiber, picosecond, single-polarization Yb 3+-doped fiber master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) delivering 20-ps pulses at user selectable repetition rates of up to 910 MHz and an average output power in excess of 100 W at 1.06 µm. The output of the MOPA was frequency-doubled using a lithium triborate crystal. Up to 56 W of green light was generated at a corresponding repetition rate of 227 MHz at an overall conversion efficiency of 56%. The diode-to-green optical power conversion efficiency was 37%. © 2006 IEEE.
