Abstract: We present results of high average power mid-infrared (mid-IR) generation employing synchronized nanosecond pulsed ytterbium and erbium fiber amplifier systems using periodically poled lithium niobate. We generate greater than 6 W of mid-IR radiation tunable in wavelength between 3.31–3.48 μ m, at power conversion efficiencies exceeding 75%, with near diffraction limited beam quality (M 2 = 1.4). Numerical modeling is used to verify the experimental results in differing pump depletion regimes.
