Abstract

We report on a sodium D 2 resonance coherent light source achieved in single-pass sum-frequency generation in periodically poled MgO -doped stoichiometric lithium tantalate with actively mode-locked Nd : YAG lasers. Mode-locked pulses at 1064 and 1319 nm are synchronized with a time resolution of 37 ps with the phase adjustment of the radio frequencies fed to acousto-optic mode lockers. An output power of 4.6 W at 589.1586 nm is obtained, and beam quality near the diffraction limit is also achieved in a simple design.
