Paper Abstract

Second harmonic generation of chemical oxygen iodine laser was investigated with a Brewster cut LBO crystal. By utilizing a Brewster cut LBO crystal the loss in the resonator can be suppressed. Further, by reducing crystal absorption, the crystal can't be heated and go off phase match or even crack due to thermal stress. We could obtain 16.4 W of second harmonic power and keep out the crystal from being destroyed by the damage of thermal stress.
