Abstract

We have generated 201 W of green (514.5 nm) average power from a frequency-doubled picosecond cryogenic Yb:YAG laser system driven by a 50 MHz, 12.4 ps mode-locked Yb fiber laser producing 430 W of average power at 1029 nm, using direct pulse amplification. The fundamental beam produced was near-diffraction-limited (M2<1.3). Second-harmonic-generation is achieved using a 20 mm long noncritically phase-matched Lithium triborate (LiB3O5) crystal; conversion efficiencies as high as 58% have been observed. At 100 W of 514.5 nm output power, the average M2 value was 1.35. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest average power picosecond green pulsed laser.
