Abstract

Compact passively Q-switched and mode-locked Nd3+:YVO4/Cr4+:YAG self-Raman laser with high mode-locked repetition rate was demonstrated. The picosecond first Stokes at 1176 nm was successfully obtained. At the maximum incident pump power, the average output power was 95 mW with the mode-locked pulse repetition rate of 940 MHz. Yellow laser output of 588.2 nm was also realized by the use of LiB3O5 frequency doubling crystal.
