Abstract

A single beamline of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) has been operated at a wavelength of 526.5 nm ( 2 ω ) by frequency converting the fundamental 1053 nm ( 1 ω ) wavelength with an 18.2 mm thick type-I potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) second-harmonic generator (SHG) crystal. Second-harmonic energies of up to 17.9 kJ were measured at the final optics focal plane with a conversion efficiency of 82%. For a similarly configured 192-beam NIF, this scales to a total 2 ω energy of 3.4 MJ full NIF equivalent (FNE).
