Abstract

A high-power continuous-wave coherent light source at 253.7nm is described. It is based on a solid-state Yb:YAG disk laser with two successive frequency doubling stages and is capable of generating stable output powers of up to 750mW. Spectroscopy of the 6S016P13 transition of mercury has been demonstrated.
