ABSTRACT
Continuous-wave power of 189 mW at 473 nm with 49% conversion efficiency is generated from a 8.5 mm long uncoated periodically polled MgO:LiNbO[sub 3] ridge-type waveguide by frequency doubling of a diode end-pumped Nd:Y[sub 3]Al[sub 5]O[sub 12] laser at room temperature; the corresponding internal blue power and conversion efficiency were 222 mW and 58%, respectively. The highest conversion efficiency of 63% (74% with respect to the blue internal power) was obtained from a 12 mm long waveguide with 99 mW blue output power. Saturation of output blue power was observed for coupled fundamental power into the waveguides in excess of 200 mW. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
