Abstract

We report the cw blue generation of Pr:YAP laser emission at room temperature, which has been achieved by intracavity frequency doubling of the near-IR-emitting Pr:YAP laser operating at a fundamental wavelength of 747nm. For active medium pumping, a GaN laser diode providing up to 1W of output power at 448nm was used. With beta barium borate crystal employed as a nonlinear medium, 12.3mW of output power at 373.5nm has been obtained.
