Paper Abstract

We report a high power continuous tunable blue light generation by frequency doubling of signal wave from a nanosecond 532-nm-pumped optical parametric oscillator (OPO) in LiB3O5 (LBO). The nonlinear crystal BiB3O6 (BiBO) is used for the second harmonic generation (SHG). Three BiBO crystals have been arranged for the walkoff compensation SHG. The large blue tuning range from 450 to 495 nm with average output powers around 1 W have been achieved. The maximum output power is up to 1.3 W at 470 nm.
