Abstract

Using a 1-W high-brightness laser diode as the pump source, we investigated the output characteristics of an intracavity frequency-doubled Nd:YVO4/KTP laser. Highly efficient operation was realized based on an optimized cavity design. The second-harmonic output power at 532 nm was measured to be 286.5 mW at an incident pump power of 881.4 mW, corresponding to an optical-to-optical efficiency of 32.5%.
