Abstract

In this paper, we present using Nd:YAG as the laser media, and Brewster plate as a polarizer device to obtain the linear polarization output at the fundamental wavelength. Using LBO (LiB3O5) crystal as non-linear crystal to obtain intra-cavity frequency doubled red laser at 659 and 669 nm and sum frequency mixing at 665 nm. Using a thin fused silica plate as an etalon to obtain the single wavelength operation. At total pump power of 30 W at 808 nm, the output powers at two wavelengths are about 4.1 and 4.5 W, respectively, only one fundamental wavelength light is resonating. The corresponding optical to optical conversion efficiency from pump light to second harmonic generation are 13.7 and 15.0%, respectively.
