Paper Abstract

This report for the first time presents the results of parameter optimisation of ultra-narrow-linewidth frequency-doubled CW Ti:Sapphire lasers pumped with 12.5-18.5 W of 532-nm light. Proposed laser systems are designed for atom cooling and provide output radiation power of more than 1.5 W at 399/401 nm (Ytterbium/Erbium) and more than 1 W at 421 nm (Dysprosium) pumped at 18.5 W. The output power of single-frequency radiation at 421 nm achieved during the present work is the highest published to-date for a commercially available system achieving a 10 kHz linewidth.
