Paper Abstract

We report on a hybrid fiber MOPA + solid-state amplifier for frequency conversion and compare a hybrid scheme versus all- fiber MOPA. Using a thoroughly designed master oscillator and optimized fiber amplifiers we were able to achieve 15-30ns long pulses at average powers above 20 W with a good spectral quality and suppressed SBS. Bulk Vanadate amplifiers boosted the 1064nm output power to greater 65W at pulse repetition rates of 300-500 kHz. More than 35 W in green and 20 W of UV light has been obtained at pulse repetition rates above 300 kHz and pulse energies of 30-100 μJ.
