Abstract

CsLiB6O10 has been found to be phase matchable for type-1 sum frequency generation to a minimum of 0.185 µm by mixing the fifth harmonic of a Nd:YAG laser at 1.0642 µm and the output of a KTP parametric oscillator pumped by the second harmonic of the same Nd:YAG laser at 20.0 °C. The improved Sellmeier equations and the thermo-optic constants of this crystal are reported.
