We demonstrate a cw, laser diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4=SrMoO 4 crystalline Raman laser. First Stokes laser output at 1173:5 nm of 2:18 W was achieved with a diode-to-first Stokes efficiency of 8.7%. With intracavity frequency doubling in LiB3O5, 3:1W of cw yellow emission at 586:8nm was obtained with a 12.4% diode-to-yellow efficiency. The experimental results show that SrMoO4 is an excellent stimulated Raman scattering gain material for high-power cw near-IR Stokes and yellow lasers.
