A compact, tunable and narrow-bandwidth laser source for blue and ultraviolet radiation is presented. A grating-stabilized diode laser at 922 nm is frequency-stabilized to below 100 Hz relative to a reference resonator. Injection of the diode-laser light into a tapered amplifier yields a power of 0.5 W. In a first frequency-doubling stage, more than 200 mW of blue light at 461 nm is generated by use of a periodically poled KTP crystal. Subsequent second-harmonic generation employing a BBO crystal leads to about 1 mW of ultraviolet light at 231nm.
