Blue lasers have numerous applications in spectroscopy, underwater communication and material processing. Direct emission in the blue region can be achieved with laser diodes, with powers up to the watt level . Higher powers require efficient laser operating around 950 nm to be frequency doubled to the blue spectrum, which usually suffer from a lower gain than conventional 1μm lasers. Generally, intracavity frequency doubling set-ups and pulsed operation are used to increase the second harmonic generation efficiency, with output powers up to 4 W in cw and 1.3W in pulsed regime . In the past few years, both lasers materials and non linear crystals have progressed enough to allow the very simple extracavity frequency doubling of continuous wave lasers in periodically poled materials to acceptable powers.
