Paper Abstract

Up to 0.75 Watt of blue laser light have been generated by second harmonic generation and additional sum frequency mixing of a 1.3 micrometer actively cw-modelocked Nd:YAG laser oscillator. Special attention has been paid to the design of the fundamental mode resonators, delivering output powers of up to 8 W at the fundamental wavelength with nearly diffraction limited beam quality. To overcome the thermally induced depolarizing birefringence a compensation scheme has been applied for further enhancement of the laser power.
