Paper Abstract

We describe a pulsed blue (485 nm) laser source based on frequency quadrupling a pulsed Tm fiber laser. Up to 1.2 W at 485 nm was generated with an M2 of 1.3. At 10 kHz pulse repetition frequency, the output pulse at 485 nm was 65 ns FWHM resulting in an estimated peak power of 1.8 kW. We anticipate further improvements in power scaling with higher power Tm fiber lasers and improved conversion efficiency to the blue with optimized AR coatings and nonlinear optical crystals.
