Paper Abstract

Solid-state laser sources in the visible and ultraviolet have several advantages over gas laser sources with regard to size, efficiency, lifetime, and amplitude stability. We will discuss the approaches that we have taken to build compact solid-state lasers operating at 532 nm, 430 nm, and 266 nm. We will review the different techniques we use to generate these wavelengths and consequent implications for performance characteristics such as output power, spatial mode, noise, and the possibility for modulation.
