Laser guided adaptive optics for astronomy can significantly improve the resolution of ground-based telescopes. We are developing an all-fiber 589nm laser system for this application by sum-frequency mixing 1583nm Er/Yb:doped and 938nm Nd:silica fiber lasers in a periodically poled crystal. Both CW and pulsed formats are under development.
