ABSTRACT
An all-solid-state tunable continuous-wave (cw) laser operating near 272 nm with a bandwidth Γ ≈ 3 MHz has been developed. The third harmonic of light from a single-cw Ti:Sapphire laser has been generated using two external enhancement cavities. An output power of 175 mW has been produced, corresponding to an overall conversion efficiency of 8%.
