We present a stable, high-power, cw, single-frequency green source in a compact and practical design based on a simple single-pass second-harmonic generation of a cw ytterbium fiber laser at 1064 nm in MgO-doped periodically poled stoichiometric . Using a 30-mm-long crystal containing a single grating, we have generated 9.64 W of cw radiation at 532 nm with a fundamental power of 29.5 W at a single-pass conversion efficiency of 32.7%. The output power is naturally stable with a peak-to-peak fluctuation of 7.6% over the first 8 h and 9% over 13 h. Over the entire range of fundamental powers, the generated green output is single frequency with an instantaneous linewidth of 6.5 MHz and frequency stability of over 30 min and has a spatial profile with .
