High peak power pulsed Yb-doped fiber laser system compete with traditional solid-state pulsed lasers in many applications. We report on pulsed fiber lasers with up to 1MW peak power, 1mJ pulse energy in 10ps to 10ns pulse duration, employing standard large core Yb-doped fiber. Visible and near UV pulsed emission with highest frequency conversion efficiencies will be reported for output powers up to 100W. Further power scaling will be discussed.
