Data associated with the manuscript 'Efficient and stable second harmonic conversion, at the 0.5 kW-level, of a diode-pumped Yb:YAG laser'
This dataset contains the experimental data presented in the manuscript 'Efficient and stable second harmonic conversion, at the 0.5 kW-level, of a diode-pumped Yb:YAG laser'.
In the manuscript, efficient and stable, type-I phase matched second harmonic conversion of a nanosecond high-energy, diode-pumped, Yb:YAG laser is presented. With the frequency doubling crystal in an enclosed, temperature-controlled holder with optical windows, an RMS energy stability of 0.49 % was achieved for a period of approximately half an hour. This resulted in 48.9 J pulses at 10 Hz (489 W) and a conversion efficiency of 73.8 %.
The dataset includes data for a range of set-point temperatures (30, 40, 50 and 70 dgerees) for the two temperature-controlled (TC) holders, TC1 and TC2. 'HJ-D-P4-EM-1' is the input energy at 1030 nm. 'HJ-SHG-1W' is the residual 1030 nm energy after the frequency doubling crystal. 'HJ-SHG-2W' is the converted 515 nm energy after the frequency doubling crystal.
