Paper Abstract

The generation of blue, tuneable (424-449 nm) laser light is achieved via direct SHG in temperature-tuned KNb03, with a tuneable Ti+3:A1203 cw laser source. Thermal regulation of the crystal over the temperature range of 0 to 90°C is accomplished using a thermoelectric device with thermistor feedback control. The room temperature phase match wavelength of KNbO3 crystals doped with Ta, Rb and Na has been found to shift toward the red. Room temperature SHG efficiency, crystal purity, beam characteristics and system components are discussed.
