Abstract

We report 32% efficient frequency doubling of single-frequency 1029nm light to green light at 514.5nm using a single-pass configuration. A congruent composition, periodically poled magnesium-doped lithium niobate (PPMgLN) crystal of 50mm length was used to generate a second-harmonic power of 2.3W. To our knowledge, this is the highest reported power and efficiency achieved in the second-harmonic generation of single-frequency green light in a single-pass configuration.

Experimental configuration used in our measurements. A single-frequency fiber seed laser is amplified in a ytterbium-doped fiber amplifier and focused into a PPMgLN crystal. The 1029 and 514.5 nm wavelengths are separated by means of two dichroic mirrors, and the green output is monitored with a powermeter.
