Abstract

Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) was characterized in LiIO3 using an intracavity configuration. The threshold intracavity pump power for observing SRS was measured to be approx. 1MW/cm2, and a maximum of 1.8W average power at 1160nm was obtained for 50% output coupling and a pulse repetition rate of 3kHz. The Stokes output considered of a train of pulses <1ns duration separated by the cavity round trip time. Efficient second harmonic generation was achieved. To data, a maximum average output power of 0.9W at the SHG wavelength of 580nm was achieved in a 3kHz pulse train.
