55% conversion efficiency to green in bulk quasi-phase-matching lithium niobate

Webjörn, J., Pruneri, V., Russell, P.St.J. and Hanna, D.C. (1995) 55% conversion efficiency to green in bulk quasi-phase-matching lithium niobate Electronics Letters, 31, (8), pp. 669-671.

Record type: Article


High voltage and liquid electrodes were used for periodic poling of lithium niobate. A sample with a period of 6.80 µm was used for first-order frequency doubling of 1064 nm Q-switched Nd:YAG light with an average power conversion of 55%, implying greater than 90% power conversion at the peak of the pulse. The effective nonlinear coefficient for both Q-switched and continuous-wave measurements was ~15 pm/V.
