A novel method for power scaling continuous-wave (CW) rare-earth (RE) doped frequency doubled fibre lasers is investigated. The limiting effects on output power are discussed. A fibre ring cavity is proposed to improve feedback into the laser oscillator. Second harmonic generation is implemented in an internal resonant enhancement cavity that allows for a high power build up. A tunable spectrum-narrowing configuration based on birefringent optical filters is proposed that will allow tuning of the main fibre resonator whilst maintaining a narrow emission bandwidth. Initial ring cavity alignment is reported along with some theoretical considerations of the enhancement cavity.
