Paper Abstract

The results of investigation of UV ((lambda) equals 271 nm) Cu vapor laser sum frequency ((lambda) 1 equals 510 nm, (lambda) 2 equals 578 nm) generation in crystal DKDP are presented. For interaction type ooe the mean UV power about 0.2 W and conversion efficiency (eta) is congruent to 2.5 divided by 3% are obtained for laser mean power about 7 W. Beam divergence, yellow and green line pulse amplitudes, and relative delay are of key importance for sum frequency generation. Optimization of standard 20 W mean power Cu vapor laser was necessary for efficient frequency conversion. The possibility of creating 5 divided by 10 W source of UV radiation is shown, using Cu vapor laser sum frequency generation in DKDP.
