Compact Blue Light Sources Using KNbO3 Waveguides

Aim: Realization of compact blue laser sources based on frequency conversion of IR solid state lasers in nonlinear optical waveguides. Approach: Ridge-type optical waveguides in KNbO3 are fabricated by He+ implantation, photolithographic masking, and ion sputtering. Waveguides are pumed by frequency narrow infrared laser diodes. Impact: Applications in spectroscopy and data storage.
