Abstract

We demonstrate high power generation of visible red and near IR light by four wave mixing in photonic crystal fibres (PCFs) pumped at 1064 nm with picosecond pulses (30-80 ps). 30% conversion efficiency is demonstrated in a single pass using fibre lengths less than 1 m, with signal wavelengths from 650 nm to 820 nm selectable by choice of PCF. An all fibre integrated system delivers 2.16 W at 740 nm with a pulse repetition frequency of 20 MHz. We discuss the overall parameter space for this type of wavelength conversion in PCF with different fibre designs suitable for delivering a particular wavelength at low or high power.
