Abstract

A new resonator design for doubly resonant continuous-wave intracavity sum-frequency mixing is presented. We generated 212  mW of coherent radiation at 618  nm by mixing the radiation of a 1080-nm Nd3+:YAlO3 laser and a 1444-nm Nd3+:YAG laser. Two different mixing resonator setups and several nonlinear-optical crystals were investigated. So far output is limited by unequal performance of the two fundamental lasers and coating problems of the nonlinear crystals.
