Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical frequency converters (harmonic generators and optical parametric oscillators) are reviewed with an emphasis on high-average power performance and limitations. NLO materials issues and NLO device designs are discussed in reference to several emerging scientific, military and industrial-commercial applications requiring approximately equals 100 watt average power level in the visible and infrared spectral regions. Research efforts required to enable practical approximately equals 100 watt class NLO based laser systems are identified.
