Tunable UV radiation near 215 nm was produced by frequency quadrupling the 860-nm emission of a mode-locked external-cavity compound semiconductor laser containing a tapered GaAlAs amplifier. A KNbO3 crystal generated the 430-nm second harmonic, which was doubled by a β-BaB2O4 crystal, producing tunable UV radiation with as much as 15 μW of average power.
