Abstract

We report on a high-power (cw) red laser at 671 nm by intracavity frequency doubling of a double-end-pumped 1342 nm Nd:YVO4 laser based on the nonlinear crystal LiB3O5. A red output power of 3.38 W is obtained for a pump power of 27 W, with corresponding optical-to-optical efficiency of 12.5%. The 671 nm beam is nearly diffraction limited.
