Abstract.

We report on a ZBLAN-fiber-based praseodymium-ytterbium-doped upconversion fiber laser operating in the blue-green with diffraction-limited beam quality. cw output powers of more than 150 mW at 491 nm are achieved for several hours without degradation. The spectroscopic data of the active material and laser parameters including the amplitude noise are discussed.
