The resistance to photorefractive damage is investigated for several nonlinear crystals. A quasi-phase-matched (QPM) second harmonic generation (SHG) waveguide device is fabricated in 5 mol% Mg-doped LiNbO3 which has high resistance to optical damage. The SHG blue laser of the QPM-SHG waveguide device and a tunable distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diode is demonstrated, wherein output stability of continuous blue light is measured. The SHG blue laser, using the QPM-SHG waveguide device with broadened flat matching response, shows good modulation characteristics. The pulsed peak power of 23 mW with rectangular modulated waveform is generated. The SHG blue laser is installed to an optical head, and good recording and readout characteristics are demonstrated. Moreover, butt-coupled SHG blue laser is examined to gain a miniature module with volume of 0·8 cc.
