Title: Continuous-wave quasi-phase-matched generation of 60thinspthinspmW at 465thinspthinspnm by single-pass frequency doubling of a laser diode in backswitch-poled lithium niobate

Abstract

We report continuous-wave single-pass second-harmonic generation (SHG) in 4-{mu}m -period 0.5-mm-thick backswitch-poled lithium niobate. Pump sources at 920{endash}930thinspthinspnm include both Ti:sapphire and diode-oscillator{endash}amplifier lasers. SHG of a Ti:sapphire laser at 6.1{percent}/W efficiency, producing 61thinspthinspmW of power at 460thinspthinspnm, is demonstrated in 50-mm-long periodically poled lithium niobate samples with a nonlinear coefficient d{sub eff}{approx}9 pm/V , and 60thinspthinspmW at 465thinspthinspnm and 2.8{percent}/W efficiency is obtained by SHG of a laser-diode source. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital Optical Society of America}
