Abstract
Laser sources with light-emission in the yellow spectral range around 577nm are very favorable for a variety of applications. These include applications in astronomy, in ophthalmology or in quantum optics. The generation and amplification of 1154 nm light is not straight forward when using Yb-doped optical fibers, since lasing occurs preferentially around the gain-maximum of 1030 nm. We generate the radiation within a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based cavity and focused on reducing the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE). After the cavity, the output is frequency doubled to 577nm by using a second harmonic crystal.
