Abstract

We report on high efficiency resonant doubling to 486nm using periodically poled KTP. The IR laser source is an FBG stabilized semiconductor laser with a maximum polarization maintaining (PM) fiber coupled output of 840mW. An output power of 680mW at 486nm was obtained from our optimized cavity, giving net efficiency of 81%. Also, we report an 87.5% net efficiency in coupling of this blue light from the servo locked cavity into a single-mode PM fiber. This gives a total of 71% fiber to fiber efficiency. Furthermore, a wall plug efficiency of 21.4% was obtained.
