This paper reports on generation of 410 mW of 355-nm output by doubly-resonant sum-frequency mixing. In order to simultaneously enhance both inputs, two independent single-frequency lasers as well as two independent servo loops are used. The first servo loop locks the mixing cavity to the first laser, while the second loop locks the frequency of the second laser to the external cavity. Double-resonance is achieved when both of the servo loops are closed. Under the double-resonance, enhanced fields are built up in the cavity at both input wavelengths, hence increasing the nonlinear conversion efficiency.
