Paper Abstract

High-power all solid-state UV lasers are highly demanding for many applications because of their compactness and ease of operation. An effective technique for UV generation is cascaded sum-frequency generation pumped by the output of near-IR solid-state lasers. The performance of these laser systems is limited by the laser power handling capability of the nonlinear optical crystals that employed for frequency up-conversion.
