Abstract

We report on an efficient use of CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) crystals employed for an all-solid-state deep-UV laser system operated at 5 kHz. We obtained greater than 3 W of UV radiation around 242 nm by mixing the 349-nm third harmonic of a Nd:YLF laser with the tunable output from a Ti:sapphire laser in a CLBO crystal. This UV radiation was subsequently mixed with the residual 1047-nm output from the Nd:YLF laser in a second CLBO crystal. The system produced 1.5 W of deep-UV radiation at 196.3 nm, which is, to our knowledge, the highest deep-UV power below 200 nm generated in a nonlinear optical crystal. Additionally, the bandwidth of both outputs was estimated to be less than 200 MHz.
