Abstract

We present sum-frequency generation (SFG) characteristics of CsB3O5 crystal (CBO). The effective nonlinear-optical coefficient of CBO in the ultraviolet range is close to its maximum. High-efficiency SFG with a picosecond Nd:YAG laser with output wavelengths of 355 and 266  nm was achieved. Experiments showed that CBO can be used under high power density without damage to the crystal.
