High power all-fiber picosecond laser system for UV light generation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Ultrafast UV and deep UV (DUV) sources are useful for many industrial applications. We present our research on developing a compact and high power picosecond Yb-fiber source for UV light generation (down to ∼ 257 nm wavelength) via single pass second and third harmonics frequency conversion processes. Currently, the laser system delivers 260 mW average power at 343 nm (using THG) and 310 mW at 257 nm (using SHG from 515 nm).
