Single crystal of YbxY1-xAl3(BO3)4(Yb:YAB) was grown by using flux method based on the potassium trimolybdate. 160 mW efficient continuous-wave green output was obtained from a fibre-coupled 976 nm laser diode. The conversion efficiency is larger than 11.3%, and the electrical-input-green conversion efficiency is 3.9%. Tunable green output from 513.0 to 545.8 nm is also demonstrated with a quartz birefringent filter. By enhancing the incident-pump-power, 1.1 W cw green output can be reached.
