Abstract

A continuous-wave distributed feedback diode laser emitting at 976nm was frequency doubled by the use of a periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide crystal with a channel size of 3μm×5μm and an interaction length of 10mm. A laser to waveguide coupling efficiency of 75% could be achieved resulting in 304mW of incident infrared light inside the waveguide. Blue laser light emission of 159mW at 488nm has been generated, which equals to a conversion efficiency of 52%. The resulting wall plug efficiency was 7.4%.
