Paper Abstract

Fiber MOPAs in the infrared wavelength region offer the advantage of high single mode output powers, independent selection of pulse repetition rates and pulse durations, and access to high repetition rates. Despite these performance advantages, most industrial and scientific applications in the visible and the ultraviolet spectral range are still dominated by solid state lasers. We will give an overview of the technical challenges of harmonic generation in fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers and discuss the state-of-the-art and future of Fiber MOPAs and bulk solid state lasers with harmonic generation.
