Paper Abstract

We describe a novel blue-green laser platform, based on the intracavity frequency doubling of Novalux Extended Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers. We have demonstrated 5 to 40mW of single-ended, 488nm, single-longitudinal mode emission with beam quality M2<1.2. The optical quality of these lasers matches that of gas lasers; their compactness and efficiency exceed ion, DPSS, and OPSL platforms. These unique properties are designed to serve diverse instrumentation markets such as bio-medical, semiconductor inspection, reprographics, imaging, etc., and to enable new applications. We also present data on the reliability of this novel laser platform and its extensions to different wavelengths (in particular, 460nm and 532nm) and to next-generation, highly compact, monolithic intracavity-doubled lasers.
