We report on high power Raman-converter frequency stage based on hydrogen-filled inhibited-coupling hollow-core photonic crystal fibers pumped by an Yb-fiber picosecond laser. This fiber Raman-convertor can operate in two SRS emission regimes by simply controlling the fiber length or the gas pressure. It can set to either generate favorably single laser line or to generate an extremely wide Raman comb. Based on this we demonstrate a pico-second pulse Raman source of 9.3 W average-power at 1.8 μm, and an ultra-wide Raman comb spanning over more than five octaves from UV to mid-infrared, containing around 70 laser lines.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
