Abstract

We demonstrate tunable single-frequency operation and precision spectroscopy of the 61S0-63P1 mercury transition (254 nm) utilizing fourth-harmonic generation of an optically pumped external-cavity semiconductor laser. We furthermore characterize the intrinsically narrow linewidth of the source.
