Abstract

A high-power external cavity diode laser (ECDL) system with narrowband emission is presented. The system is based on a commercially available high-power GaN laser diode. For the ECDL, a maximum optical output power of 400 mW in continuous-wave operation with narrowband emission is achieved. Longitudinal mode selection is realized by using a surface diffraction grating in Littrow configuration. A spectral width of 20 pm at 445 nm with a side-mode suppression ratio larger than 40 dB is achieved. This concept enables diode laser systems suitable for subsequent nonlinear frequency conversion into the UV spectral range.
