Abstract This project starts out with the already proposed SFG laser system for generation g light at 593 nm. A more detailed analytical solution to Helmholtz equation for SFG will be presented. To gain some insight in the dynamics of the laser system, power scaling, acceptance bandwidth, and influence of a final spectral width of the mixing fields will be simulated. A new mechanical system was produced and will be tested for thermal- and mechanical stability, from this test a second and improved mechanical system has been proposed. Furthermore two 20 mm long PPKTP crystals will be tested, and an explanation for their poor performance will be given. Last a novel approach for generating pulsed 593 nm light, only Q-switching the 1064 nm laser will be tried. Here 4 Watt of peak power was achieved.
