All-solid-state narrow-linewidth 455-nm blue laser based on Ti:sapphire crystal
A compact, all-solid-state, narrow-linewidth, pulsed 455-nm blue laser based on Ti:sapphire crystal is developed. Pumped by a 10-Hz, frequency-doubled all-solid-state Nd:YAG laser and injection-seeded by an external cavity laser diode, the narrow-linewidth 910-nm laser with pulse width of 20 ns is obtained from a Ti:sapphire laser. 3.43-mJ blue laser can be obtained from the laser system by frequency-doubling with BBO crystal. This research is very useful to determine the roadmap of developing the practical, high power blue laser. This kind of laser will have potential application for underwater communication.
