Abstract

We describe continuous wave single-frequency operation of an intracavity frequency-doubled Nd:YLF ring laser end-pumped by a fiber-coupled laser diode. Output power of 770mW has been achieved at 526.5nm. The amplitude noise of the laser reaches the quantum noise limit for frequencies above 5MHz, and the phase noise reaches the quantum noise limit for frequencies above 10MHz. The laser’s emission frequency can be tuned over 12GHz by using an intracavity LiTaO3 electro-optic crystal based Fabry–Perot etalon.
