Paper Abstract

We describe the demonstration of the high pulse energy and high efficiency second-harmonic generation (SHG) at 532-nm using large aperture CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) crystals for the first time to our knowledge. A pulsed green energy of 25 J has been generated with 34 J of input 1064-nm Nd:glass laser radiation using a two-stage crystal architecture. High conversion efficiency of 74% has been attained at fundamental laser intensity of only 370MW/cm2. This result represents the highest green pulse energy ever reported using the CLBO crystals. We discuss in detail the design and performance of SHG using CLBO crystals.
