Abstract

Efficient frequency doubling of a cw Q-switched and mode-locked Nd:YAG laser has been observed in commercial single-mode optical glass fibers. Pulses of duration ~55 psec and intensities as high as ~0.55 kW were produced at 0.53 μm. The maximum peak power-conversion efficiency measured was ~3%. The frequency-doubled light generated in the glass fibers was sufficient to pump a commercial Rh6G dye laser with ~19% efficiency at 570 nm.
