Abstract

Quasi-phase-matched second-harmonic generation of 532nm radiation in 25°-rotated, x-cut, near-stoichiometric lithium tantalate has been performed. Using a face-normal topology for frequency conversion applications allows scalable surface area to avoid surface and volume damage in high-power interactions. First-order, quasi-phase-matched second-harmonic generation was achieved using near-stoichiometric lithium tantalate fabricated by vapor transport equilibration. These crystals supported 1J of 1064nm radiation and generated 21mJ of 532nm radiation from a 7ns, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser within a factor of 4.2 of expectation.
