Abstract

With two cw single-mode Nd:YAG lasers at 1064 and 1319nm and a periodically poled lithium niobate crystal, 11mW of 2kHz100ms bandwidth single-mode tunable 589nm cw radiation has been detected using single-pass sum-frequency generation. The demonstrated conversion efficiency is 3.2%[W1cm1]. This compact solid-state light source has been used in a solid-state–dye laser hybrid sodium fluorescence lidar transmitter to measure temperatures and winds in the upper atmosphere (80105km); it is being implemented into the transmitter of a mobile all-solid-state sodium temperature and wind lidar under construction.
