Abstract

Type II quasi-phase matching was employed for first-order frequency doubling of a single-longitudinal-mode Ti:sapphire laser in periodically poled KTP with a domain-inverted period of 9.01 µm. In a single-pass configuration, 0.44 mW of UV power at 398.8 nm was generated for an input of 780 mW, corresponding to a normalized conversion efficiency of 0.09% W-1 cm-1. The nonlinear coefficient d24=2.82 pm/V was deduced from the measurements. The larger grating period for the type II quasi-phase-matched second-harmonic-generation process than for type I quasi-phase matching, lowers the fabrication constrains in the short-wavelength region and increases the acceptance bandwidth.
