We demonstrate a diode-side-pumped Nd:YVO4 self-Raman laser at 1176 nm in a grazing incidence configuration operating in quasi-continuous mode. More than 8 W of output power was achieved in multimode operation, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 15%. With TEM00 mode operation is also demonstrated.
