Paper Abstract

A novel ultraviolet laser is demonstrated using a dual wavelength Nd:YAG oscillator, sum frequency and second harmonic process. Synchronous pulses at 1.052 and 1.319 micrometers are amplified, mixed and subsequently doubled, producing pulses at 0.293 micrometers. An attractive feature of this laser design is that it is line tunable. With a properly designed resonator, a potential of 44 possible ultraviolet laser transitions can be operated, resulting in a line tunable UV laser in the wavelength range 0.263 to 0.339 micrometers.
