Paper Abstract

Materials requirements and possible materials for optical second-harmonic generation of laser diode radiation will be discussed. It will be shown, that KNbO3 is an almost ideal material for frequency doubling Ga1-xAlxAs injection lasers operating at room temperature. In a pulsed mode of operation up to a few milliwatts of dark-blue light with λ = 430 nm can be generated.
