Abstract

Phasematch curves as well as sensitivity to angular and wavelength misalignment for generation of second-harmonic of 785 nm and 810 nm in Bi3BO6 crystal was calculated. Measurements were done for intra-cavity CW SHG in a Ti:Sapphire laser. The BiBO crystal was found to be excellent for this application. Temperature dependance was uncritical for both crystals, while power stability was good. Maximum blue output was 53 mW at 392 nm and 100 mW at 405 nm; corresponding to pump-to-blue optical conversion efficiencies of 0.96% and 1.82% respectively.
