A 3.5 W fiber-based laser source at 772 nm is demonstrated by using quasiphase-matched second-harmonic generation of a 40 dBm seeded ytterbium–erbium fiber amplifier in PPKTP. A 40% conversion efficiency is achieved across the entire output power range of the EDFA. No optical damage has been observed in the PPKTP over long-term high-power exposure. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
