Abstract

We report on a sodium D2 resonance coherent light source achieved in single-pass sum-frequency generation in periodically poled MgO-doped stoichiometric lithium tantalate with actively mode-locked Nd:YAG lasers. Mode-locked pulses at 1064 and 1319nm are synchronized with a time resolution of 37ps with the phase adjustment of the radio frequencies fed to acousto-optic mode lockers. An output power of 4.6W at 589.1586nm is obtained, and beam quality near the diffraction limit is also achieved in a simple design.
