Paper Abstract

We report implementation of compact cascaded multicrystal scheme for single-pass second-harmonic-generation (SHG), using birefringent crystal, for continuous-wave (cw) deep ultraviolet (UV) generation. The system comprises of 4 cascaded stages, is based on critical phase-matched interaction in β-BaB2O4 (BBO), and pumped by a cw singlefrequency green source at 532 nm. A deep-UV cw output power of 37.7 mW at 266 nm has been obtained with a high passive power stability of 0.12 % rms over more than 4 hours in Gaussian spatial beam quality with a circularity of >70%.
