Abstract

We demonstrate the direct generation of a first-order LG01 Laguerre Gaussian (vortex) mode operating at the first-Stokes wavelength of a diode end-pumped, Nd:GdVO4 self-Raman laser. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of intracavity stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) being used as a method for frequency conversion of a vortex laser beam and it is effective in enabling the frequency-converted (Stokes) beam to have the same LG01 mode as the fundamental beam.
