Abstract : This report describes the design and construction of an optically pumped semiconductor laser oscillator with the following specifications: 1) Operating wavelengths, 414 nm and 680nm, interchangeable (i.e., requires a change in optical setup and the pump source, but no change in the cavity design); 2) CW power, nominal 30 mW each line; and 3) Tuning range of + or - 30 nm. The laser includes all external ring cavity components, cooling (nonliquid n2), and provisions were made for mounting line narrowing and tuning elements. Ancillary equipment list, operating and instruction manuals were also provided. Keywords include: Semiconductor laser, Phase conjugation, Resonator, Nonlinear optics, and wavefront processing.
