Abstract

We report 13% second-harmonic conversion efficiency of a 15-mW, cw, diode-laser-pumped Nd:YAG oscillator. 2 mW of single-axial-mode 532-mm radiation was generated by externally resonant second-harmonic generation in a monolithic MgO:LiNbO3 nonlinear crystal cavity. The measured finesse of 450 for the monolithic external cavity indicated that absorption and scatter losses in the doubler were less than 0.8%.
