Abstract

We report an all-solid-state laser system that generates over 200 mW cw at 244 nm . An optically pumped semiconductor laser is internally frequency doubled to 488 nm . The 488 nm output is coupled to an external resonator, where it is converted to 244 nm using a Cs Li B 6 O 10 (CLBO) crystal. The output power is limited by the available power at 488 nm , and no noticeable degradation in output power was observed over a period of several hours.
