Abstract

A diode-pumped, actively Q-switched second-Stokes dual-wavelength laser employing ceramic Nd:YAG as the gain medium and BaWO4 as the Raman medium is demonstrated. The dual-wavelength Raman laser emission at 1321 and 1325 nm is based on the dual-wavelength fundamental laser emission at 1061 and 1064 nm. With a pump power of 18.4 W and pulse repetition frequency of 15 kHz, a maximum dual-wavelength output power of 1.67 W was obtained, comprising a 0.75 W, 1321 nm laser component and a 0.92 W, 1325 nm laser component. The corresponding dual-wavelength second-Stokes pulse width was 2.9 ns.
