Abstract

Use of light from high power blue laser based on sum frequency generation, for cooling neutral strontium atoms was presented. Blue light was generated by a 20 mm long antireflection coated KNbO3 crystal that was placed inside a non-monolithic standing wave resonator. Doubly resonant sum frequency generation of a high power Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm and a medium power diode laser at 813 nm were used. A total of 70 mW of blue light was obtained and the power conversion efficiency of the system was 20%.
