Abstract
A polarization-converting system is designed by using axicons and wave plate transforming naturally polarized laser to linearly polarized laser at real time to resolve difficulties of generating high-power linearly polarized laser. The energy conversion efficiency reaches 96.9% with an enhancement of extinction ratio from 29.7% to 98%. The system also keeps excellent far field divergence. In the one-way SHG experiment the double frequency efficiency reached 4.32% using the generated linearly polarized laser, much higher than that of the naturally polarized laser but lower than that of the linearly polarized laser from PBS. And the phenomenon of the SHG experiment satisfies the principle of phase matching. The experiment proves that this polarization-converting system will not affect laser structure which controls easily and needs no feedback and controlling system with stable and reliable properties at the same time. It can absolutely be applied to the polarization-conversion of high power laser and enhance the SHG efficiency and the energy efficiency.
