Abstract

We proposed a method to determine device quality in heat removal. Temperature change depending on SH power was analyzed by fitting with a new model to characterize heat removal performance of SHG modules, named as phase-matched calorimetry (PMC). The thermal disposal performance of SHG devices was improved by combination of metal housing and reduced crystal aperture. With a tight aperture, we demonstrated a 19 W single-pass 532-nm SHG at a conversion efficiency of 26.5% in a 10-mm-long PPMgSLT crystal without saturation.
