Abstract

We report the first demonstration to our knowledge of 220-ps visible laser generation from passively Q-switched-laser pumped periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) in a single-pass, cascaded frequency-conversion process. The monolithic PPLN consists of a 1-cm section for frequency doubling the 1064-nm Nd:YAG pump laser to a 532-nm laser and a subsequent 4-cm section for generating the visible laser in a 532-nm-pumped optical parametric generation (OPG) process. In generating the 622.3-nm OPG signal wavelength we measured a 3.0μJ/pulse pump threshold at the 1064-nm wavelength, 16% overall efficiency, and 35% slope efficiency at two times threshold. At 10-6 pump duty cycle and 20-mW average power in the visible, photorefractive damage was not observed at the phase-matching temperature of 40.3 °C.
