We present a stable, high-power, cw, single-frequency green source in a compact and practical design based on a simple single-pass second-harmonic generation of a cw ytterbium fiber laser at 1064 nm in MgO-doped periodically poled stoichiometric LiTaO(3). Using a 30-mm-long crystal containing a single grating, we have generated 9.64 W of cw radiation at 532 nm with a fundamental power of 29.5 W at a single-pass conversion efficiency of 32.7%. The output power is naturally stable with a peak-to-peak fluctuation of 7.6% over the first 8 h and 9% over 13 h. Over the entire range of fundamental powers, the generated green output is single frequency with an instantaneous linewidth of 6.5 MHz and frequency stability of <32 MHz over 30 min and has a TEM(00) spatial profile with M(2)<1.33.
