Abstract: The efficient nonlinear conversion of Yb-doped fiber laser systems using a combination of stimulated Raman scattering and second-harmonic generation is an effective method for developing sources for biophotonic applications in the yellow-green spectral region. In this paper, we review recent progress in the development of these sources, compare the relative benefits of differing source architectures and demonstrate STED microscopy using an exemplar source.
