Abstract

We report the generation of multi-watt continuous-wave (CW) yellow laser emission from an intracavity diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4/BaWO4 Raman laser utilising a high-Q resonator (for fundamental and first-Stokes wavelengths) and intracavity frequency-doubling in LBO. CW output power of 2.9 W is achieved with a high overall diode-to-yellow conversion efficiency of 11 % and with good beam quality (M2∼2.5).
