Abstract
We demonstrate a fiber laser that generates bursts of 70-300 pulses at a frequency of 2-8 MHz with over 4 mJ of energy per burst at a wavelength of 532 nm. The output of an Yb-doped fiber amplifier chain is doubled in a single pass through an LBO crystal with efficiency of above 65%. A seed-diode generates the pulse train, which is amplified to a peak power that allows efficient SHG. Such a solution may have many industrial and other applications, where fiber-based solutions have many advantages, but suffer a disadvantage of relatively low pulse energy.
