Abstract

We report efficient room-temperature continuous-wave intracavity frequency doubling of an upconversion-pumped Er(1%):YLiF4 laser at 850 nm. A titanium-sapphire laser was used for excitation of the S-4(3/2)-- > I-4(13/2) transition in erbium. The maximum laser output power at 850 nm was 1200 mW. Intracavity frequency doubling the fundamental wave utilizing lithium triborate as nonlinear crystal yielded a maximum second-harmonic output power of 540 mW at 425 nm.
