Paper Abstract

Compact and efficient visible laser sources operating at wavelengths below 480 nm are required for a number of important commercial and scientific applications. These include high density optical storage, high definition projection video, reprographics and fluorescence-based bioanalytical instrumentation. During the past few years a number of efficient nonlinear optical techniques for the upconversion of GaAlAs diode lasers have been demonstrated. Unfortunately, each of these is currently separated from the commercial marketplace by at least one key technical problem.
