Abstract

We report the generation of quasi-continuous-wave vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) coherent light based on a Ti:sapphire laser with two successive frequency doubling stages. In the first stage, UV light at 399 nm with power of 1.1 W was obtained by exploiting an enhanced cavity. With a KBBF crystal as nonlinear material, quasi-continuous-wave VUV coherent light with power of about 25 mW at 199.5 nm and 4.7 mW at 193.5 nm were achieved through a single-pass SHG configuration, respectively, in the second stage.
