AbstractNonlinear wavelength conversion lasers pumped by high-repetition-rate mode-locked lasers are in great demand for applications where both high-average-power and high-peak power are required while the lasers cannot be generated from direct transitions. In this thesis, supercontinuum generation in a photonic crystal fiber and third-harmonic generation in a BBO crystal pumped by a linearly polarized 390 MHz mode-locked fiber laser at 1030 nm were investigated. Spectral broadening spanning over 1025-1090 nm with 7W was obtained. Third harmonic generation laser with 343 nm was obtained. Power scaling of the supercontinuum laser and third harmonic generation laser were discussed.
