Abstract
Both CW and pulsed diode lasers covering the wavelength region 855-912 nm have been investigated for the frequency doubling in KNbO. The influence of the spectral distribution mode character and the optical geometry of the laser beam have been investigated for several AlGaAs diode lasers. Second harmonic radiation with maximum efficiency of typically 1 has been detected both by temperature tuning CT 10-130 C noncritical phase matching) and by angle tuning. Results clearly demonstrate the critical aspects of the laser mode spectrum and the beam geometry as to the phase matching criterion in frequency doubling.
