    Abstract

    We report a tunable, narrow-linewidth UV laser based on intracavity second-harmonic generation in a red semiconductor disk laser. Single-frequency operation is demonstrated with a total UV output power of 26 mW. By servo-locking the fundamental frequency to a reference Fabry–Pérot cavity, the linewidth of the UV beam has been reduced to 16 kHz on short timescales and 50 kHz on a 1 s timescale, relative to the reference.
