Abstract

We have frequency doubled a 1319-nm Nd:YAG laser in a quasi-phase-matched LiNbO3 waveguide and used the ≈1-mW second-harmonic output to investigate the 127I2 transitions near 660 nm. We reached submegahertz laser-frequency stability at a (vacuum) wavelength of 1319.098 nm by locking the second harmonic to the center of the P(48)6–6 transition.
