In this work, we present a continuous-wave yellow laser operating at 586.5nm based on self-Raman conversion in Nd:GdVO4. We report more than 4.2W CW and 5.5W instantaneous output at a 50% duty cycle regime. This is the highest CW power of a self-Raman laser to be reported so far. We also demonstrate the integration of this laser cavity into a console for applications in ophthalmology, and more specifically for retinal photocoagulation therapies.
