Abstract

A single-cavity solid-state laser that is resonant with sodium D 2 absorption is reported. Simultaneous 1.06- and 1.32-μm emission from a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is summed with an intracavity type II KTP crystal. A single-intracavity étalon is sufficient to provide a time-averaged linewidth of 1.7 GHz at 589 nm.
