Abstract

Recent progress in diamond growth via chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has enabled the manufacture of single crystal samples of sufficient size and quality for realizing Raman laser devices. Here we report an external cavity CVD-diamond Raman laser pumped by a Q-switched 532 nm laser. In the investigated configuration, the dominant output coupling was by reflection loss at the diamond’s uncoated Brewster angle facets caused by the crystal’s inherent birefringence. Output pulses of wavelength 573 nm with a combined energy of 0.3 mJ were obtained with a slope efficiency of conversion of up to 22%.

Experimental arrangement for the diamond Raman laser. In the case of the output beam reflected from the upper Brewster facet, a short-pass filter (high transmission <540 nm) was used to discriminate the residual pump beam from the Stokes output.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

The 573 nm output energy and efficiency characteristics of the diamond Raman laser. The output energy is measured for a single beam reflection off the diamond facet. The efficiencies represent the total conversion efficiency of the pump to the 4 facet reflections combined. The inset shows the pulse durations of the incident pump laser and the first Stokes for 2.0mJ input energy.
