Abstract

A cw diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser is mode locked at 80 MHz and produces 5.5 W of output at 1.064 μm. Intracavity frequency doubling by using KTP produces 3 W of mode-locked output at 0.532 μm.

(a) Laser cavity employed for producing mode-locked output at 1.064 μm. (b) Stable intracavity doubling is achieved by moving the mode locker to the rear of the cavity and inserting the KTP crystal at the beam waist. A dichroic turning mirror is introduced to extract unidirectional output at 0.532 μm.

Dependence of mode-locked output power on diode pump power at 0.807 μm. Data are show for output at 1.064 and 0.532 μm, together with the cw intracavity-doubled output for comparison.

Autocorrelation trace of 1.064-μm output obtained with the KTP crystal removed from the cavity of Fig. 1(b). The trace represents half of the laser pulse.

Series of oscilloscope traces of mode-locked output at 0.532 μm made on different time scales as shown. The traces are overlapped for ease of comparison, but the relative amplitudes are identical.
