Abstract

A linearly polarized, narrow-linewidth, diode-pumped, Yb-doped silica-fiber oscillator operating at 1150 nm was frequency doubled to produce 40 mW of 575 nm radiation. The oscillator generated 89 mW of cw linearly polarized output power and was tunable over 0.80 nm. The laser output was coupled to a periodically poled LiNbO3 waveguide that converted 67% of the coupled power to the yellow. The system was fully integrated, with no free-space optics, and had an overall optical-to-optical efficiency of 7.0% with respect to the incident diode-laser pump power.
