Abstract

We demonstrate high-energy picosecond near-vacuum ultraviolet laser pulse generation. Frequency quadrupling is achieved by noncollinear sum-frequency mixing of the fundamental and the third harmonic of a two-stage Ti:sapphire amplifier in β - BaB 2 O 4 crystal. UV pulses with energies of 10   mJ tunable from 195 to 210   nm at a 10   Hz repetition rate are obtained.
