Abstract

We report on a single-pass device that efficiently converts the broadband near-infrared output from a femtosecond fiber laser into a narrow spectrum in the visible. With fan-out poled MgO:LiNbO3 we obtain subpicosecond, continuously tunable pulses in the 520700nm range. Conversion efficiencies as high as 30% are observed at typical pump power levels of 30mW, corresponding to average output powers up to 9.5mW. The specifications of our device are ideal for applications in confocal microscopy and frequency metrology.
