Abstract

A high-power continuous-wave coherent light source at 253.7 nm is described. It is based on a solid-state Yb:YAG disk laser with two successive frequency doubling stages and is capable of generating stable output powers of up to 750 mW . Spectroscopy of the 6 S 0 1 6 P 1 3 transition of mercury has been demonstrated.
