Abstract

We report a high-power diode-double-end-pumped Q-switched Nd:YVO4 red laser through intracavity frequency-doubling with a type-I critical phase-matched LBO crystal. At a repetition frequency of 21.72 kHz, a maximum average output power of 10.2 W at 671 nm was measured to while the incident pump power was 78.4 W, the corresponding optical conversion efficiency was 13.0%, with a pulse width of about 94 ns and a pulse energy of 469.6 μJ, the peak power was 5.0 kW. At an average output power around 9.6 W a power stability better than 2.3% was maintained for half an hour.
