Abstract

We present a scheme for conversion of pulsed light from the infrared to the red spectral region, using an aperiodically poled ferroelectric crystal within a resonant cavity in which two cascaded nonlinear optical processes occur when pumped with a pulsed Nd:YAG laser. This device emits 9 ns pulses of over 1 mJ at 710 nm and is a viable source for future biomedical applications.
