Subject: SHG on PSL table 

In order to increase the green power on the PSL table, I moved the position of the Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) crystal by ~5cm.

After this modification, the green power increased from 200 uW to 640 uW. This is sufficiently good.

     As I said in the past elog entry (# 3122), the power of the green beam generated at the PSL table should be about 650 uW.

I measured the green power by the Ophir power meter and found it was ~200 uW, which made me a little bit sad.

Then I performed the beam scan measurement to confirm if the crystal  was  located on the right place. And I found the postion was off from the optimum position by ~5cm.

So I slided the postion of the SHG oven to the right place and eventually the power got increased to 640 uW.


some notes: 

(power measurement)

        The outgoing beam from the SHG crystal is filtered by Y1-45S to eliminate 1064nm.

According to Mott's measurement Y1 mirrors are almost transparent for green beams (T~90%), but highly reflective for 1064nm (T~0.5%).

All the green power were measured after the Y1 mirror by the Ophir configured to 532nm, though, the measured power might be offseted by a leakage of 1064nm from the Y1 mirror.

I didn't take this effect into account.



(beam scanning and positioning of crystal)

          Here is the properties of the incident beam. These numbers are derived from the beam scan measurement.

w0h             = 52.6657      +/- 0.3445 um

w0v             = 52.4798      +/- 0.1289  um

z0h             = 0.574683         +/- 0.001937 m

z0v             = 0.574325         +/- 0.0007267 m

Where the suffixes "h" and "v" stand for "horizontal" and "vertical" respectively.

The distances are calibrated such that it starts from the lens postion.

Both waist size are already sufficiently good because the optimum conversion can be achieved when the waist size is about 50um ( see this entry)

The measured data and their fitting results are shown in attachement 1.

         According to my past calculation the center of the crystal should be apart from the beam waist by 6.8mm (see this entry)

So at first I put the oven exactly on the waist postion, and then I slided it by 6.8mm.



(to be done)

        I need to find an optimum temperature for the crystal in order to maximize the green power.

Previously the optimum temperature for the crystal was 38.4 deg. But after moving the position I found the optimum temperature is shifted down to around 37deg.
