Abstract

We demonstrate UV generation in CsB3O5 (CBO) crystals grown by the top-seeded solution growth technique. 355-nm UV light was generated by use of a type II CBO crystal as a sum frequency of the fundamental light and the second harmonic of a nanosecond Nd:YVO4 laser. A 3.0-W output of the third-harmonic was obtained at a repetition rate of 31 kHz. The conversion efficiency from the fundamental light to the third harmonic reached 30%, which was 1.5 times higher than that obtained with a type II LiB3O5 crystal under the same experimental conditions.
