Abstract

Over 100μW of continuous-wave tunable ultraviolet radiation at 370nm is generated by the sum- frequency mixing of radiation from two extended-cavity laser diodes having powers of 60mW at 822nm and 8mW at 671nm in a lithium iodate crystal. The crystal is placed in an external cavity that enhances the powers of two fundamental beams simultaneously by approximately 40. This light source is successfully applied to the laser cooling of trapped ytterbium ions.
