Abstract

We report on cw tunable green laser light generation from a Nd:YVO4 laser operating at 1342 nm. Visible radiation was produced by a frequency mixing of pump and laser radiation inside an intracavity KTP crystal. When Nd:YVO4 was diode pumped, green laser was tunable from 503 to 505 nm. The green tuning range increases up to 22 nm when a Ti:sapphire laser is used as the pump source. In nonoptimal conditions, and for a pump power of 650 mW, green power was above 3 mW and close to 0.1 mW for Ti:sapphire and diode pumping, respectively.
