Abstract

By simple extra-cavity frequency conversion, the performance of a diode single-end-pumped AO Q-switched Nd:GdVO4/KTP/BBO 266 nm laser was demonstrated. Under the incident pump power of 14.32 W, the maximum average output power at 266 nm was 374 mW at the repetition of 20 kHz; the opticaloptical conversion efficiency was 2.6%. The corresponding pulse width was 5 ns, with the single-pulse energy and peak power calculated to be 18.7 μJ and 3.74 kW, respectively. The dependence of the operational parameters on the pump power was also investigated experimentally.
