Paper Abstract

The method of frequency conversion based on the use of nonlinear crystal as an output coupler of laser cavity has been proposed and experimentally tested. Frequency doubling characteristics of such a nonlinear output coupler have been studied. It is shown that the second harmonic generation efficiency of a TE carbon-dioxide laser output in this case is several times higher than for traditional focusing methods at the comparable energy parameters of the fundamental frequency radiation.
