High-power CW deep-UV coherent light sources around 200 nm based on external resonant sum-frequency mixing

We report pure continuous-wave (CW) high-power (>100 mW) deep-ultraviolet (DUV) light sources emitting around 200-nm spectral region based on singly resonant sum-frequency mixing (SRSFM). Efficient DUV generation is made possible by use of a Brewster-cut CsLiB/sub 6/O/sub 10/ (CLBO) crystal near noncritically phase-matched (NCPM) condition for the SFM of 1… CONTINUE READING
