Abstract

We report the first observation to our knowledge of coherent emission at 473 nm from an intracavity-doubled Nd:YAG microlaser. The d32 coefficient of potassium niobate was used in a 90-deg, temperature-tuned, Type I phase-matching configuration to generate the second harmonic of the 946-nm intracavity field. Output powers in excess of 5 mW at optical conversion efficiencies of approximately 2% have been observed with dye-laser pumping at 588 nm.
