Abstract

Ultraviolet second-harmonic generation in first-order periodically poled MgO:LiNbO3 is presented. Using a high-voltage multipulse application method, we fabricated a first-order nonlinear grating with a period of 1.8 µm and depth of 150 µm over 10-mm interaction length in a 1-mm-thick MgO:LiNbO3 substrate. In a single-pass configuration, continuous-wave 30-mW UV light at 362.5 nm was generated for a fundamental power of 522 mW, corresponding to a normalized conversion efficiency of 11%/W.
