Abstract

Based on the existing design in our prototype laser facility, the third-harmonic generation of the phase modulated broadband of 0.3 nm and narrowband lasers are theoretically analyzed and experimentally studied in this paper. The output third-harmonic generation (THG) laser characteristics such as the conversion efficiency, the spectrum distribution and the intensity modulation are compared in detail. It is found that the THG conversion efficiencies for the narrowband and such broadband lasers are fundamentally identical without spectrum narrowing. In addition, the interrelationship between THG conversion efficiency and incident fundamental light intensity for both lasers is experimentally demonstrated and the experimental results agree with the theoretical analysis. The broadband THG spectrum with ideal repetition and without loss of spectrum is obtained in the experiment.
