|Title:||Frequency doubled diode laser in alternative extended cavity|
|Abstract:||We report on an alternative extended cavity scheme used with a 180 mW quantum well GaAlAs diode laser, operating near 850 nm. A dispersing prism and a thin glass plate are employed to enforce stable single-mode operation in the strong feedback regime, with no need for laser AR coatings. Compared to other configurations where a grating is used, the lower loss in the extended cavity allows higher fundamental power available for second harmonic generation. For example, by frequency doubling using potassium niobate in a power enhancement cavity, enough power can be generated from a single diode laser to decelerate and trap calcium atoms with radiation at 423 nm.
