Abstract:

A narrow band, high power and coherent source of red light in the red 600-650 nm spectral region is disclosed. The red light source comprises a first optical source for emitting a first light beam at a first wavelength, a second optical source for emitting a second light beam at a second wave length, a combiner for combining the first and second light beams to produce a combined beam, and a nonlinear crystal responsive to the combined beam for producing a sum frequency light beam of red light.
