Abstract

We report a new source of cw, single-frequency radiation in the blue, offering extended tunability and practical powers in a compact, all-solid-state design. The device is based on a green-pumped, cw, singly resonant optical parametric oscillator using MgO -doped stoichiometric lithium tantalate ( MgO : sPPLT ) as the nonlinear material. By internal second-harmonic generation of the resonant near-infrared signal radiation in a 5 mm BiB 3 O 6 crystal, we generate nearly 450 mW of cw, single-frequency blue power over a tunable range of 425 489 nm with a linewidth of 8.5 MHz and a Gaussian spatial beam profile. The demonstrated wavelength coverage can be further extended by using alternative gratings for the MgO : sPPLT crystal.
