Abstract

We report external cavity second-harmonic generation of light at 544 and 272 nm based on an ytterbium-doped distributed-feedback fiber laser. The nonlinear crystal used to generate light at 544 nm is Li Nb O 3 , and the maximum output of the cavity is 845 mW , corresponding to a conversion efficiency of 55%. In a second frequency-doubling step, using a β - Ba Ba 2 O 4 crystal, we generate up to 115 mW of light at 272 nm with a conversion efficiency of 14%.
