Abstract

Continuous-wave blue light at 429 nm from a second harmonic process has been investigated at room temperature with Potassium Niobate (KNbO3) crystal. Optimum parameters for nonlinear conversion in our designing single-resonant, external ring cavity pumped by the Ti:sapphire laser are established. 39% of maximum overall conversion efficiency is obtained and factors that limit the conversion efficiency is discussed.
