Abstract

We report frequency doubling of a low-power cw diode laser at 1064 nm in an external ring cavity by use of an angle-tuned KTP type II crystal. We demonstrate a new setup that requires no temperature stabilization of the crystal. An intracavity λ/2 plate rotates the polarization of the fundamental after each cavity round trip by 90°; this provides the two eigenpolarizations of the crystal required for a type II nonlinear process. As a result, it is possible to maintain the resonance condition by use of a standard locking circuit.
