NL-2-26-2 / Study on the stability of 561 nm diode-pumped solid state lasers
* Tyler Kashak, McMaster University, Canada

Qianli Ma, McMaster University
Chang-qing Xu, McMaster University
A compact, and low cost CW 561 nm diode pumped solid state (DPSS) yellow laser is proposed and discussed. The laser was built upon an Nd:YAG crystal and an MgO:PPLN crystal as the nonlinear medium. The advantages of MgO:PPLN as well as the stability of the laser and physical origins of the observed effects are discussed.
NL-2-26-3 / Degenerate Four Wave Mixing in an epsilon-near-zero material

We investigate degenerate four-wave mixing in an epsilon-near-zero material. A large diffraction efficiency is observed using only a 310-nm-thick sample.
