Abstract

We report on 120-mW directly measured cw power at 532 nm from a tunable α-distributed-feedback laser diode near 1.064 µm frequency doubled in a KTP crystal operating room temperature inside a ring cavity. Our experimental setup allows us to scan frequencies up to 2 THz in the green-light domain and thus is extremely useful for iodine spectroscopy. We show good agreement between experimental results and theoretical predictions for the second-harmonic generation process.

Experimental setup. The laser source is isolated from backreflected light by two Faraday isolators, and the beam is mode matched to the cavity with two lenses (f1 and f2). The laser beam polarization inside the cavity is optimized by means of two half-wave plates λ/2. PD, photodiode; other abbreviations defined in text.
