Paper Abstract

An eyesafe source (1.61 micrometers ) with 1.1% wallplug efficiency, is demonstrated using a Nd:YAG pumped KTP optical parametric oscillator with peak-power conversion efficiencies of 70%. Joule-level scaling, kHz repetition-rates, and ns pulselengths are now accessible using this technology.
