Paper Abstract

Techniques and results for high second harmonic conversion efficiencies (>60%) of solid state lasers, using a single KD*P crystal are presented. This 60% approaches the theoretical limit for beams with both a Gaussian temporal and spatial profile. Designs using segmented transverse flow cooled plates, which are capable of handling the high average powers available from slab laser systems, are also discussed.
