Abstract

Waveguides were inscribed into a 9.5 mm long periodically poled KTiOPO4 crystal with a Ti:sapphire femtosecond-laser. Waveguiding was achieved between two parallel written tracks with spacings of 17–19 μm. The fundamental power of 1.6 W for frequency doubling in the waveguide was delivered by a continuous wave Ti:sapphire laser at a wavelength of 943.18 nm. A maximum output power of 76 mW in the blue spectral region was achieved. This corresponds to a single pass normalized conversion efficiency of 4.6%W1cm2.
