Paper Abstract

Systems with spherical mirrors are proposed as an alternative to using lenses for line focusing employed for enhancing nonlinear laser frequency conversion efficiency. Optimal parameters of spherical mirrors systems are determined, and advantageous features of the proposed systems are demonstrated using as an example a system designed for producing high power UV radiation by frequency conversion of copper vapor laser beam in a nonlinear BBO crystal.
