Intracavity second harmonic generation (ISHG) of a continuous wave, diode-pumped, broadband Yb-doped fibre laser has been investigated. Frequency doubling of the fibre output and of the residual diode pump light, and sum frequency mixing (SFM) between the fibre output and the pump light were achieved simultaneously, resulting in three colour operation in the blue-green region.
