Abstract

We report a linear-cavity high-power all-solid-state Q-switched yellow laser. The laser source comprises a diode-side-pumped Nd:YAG module that produces 1064nm fundamental radiation, an intracavity BaWO4 Raman crystal that generates a first-Stokes laser at 1180nm, and a KTP crystal that frequency doubles the first-Stokes laser to 590nm. A convex-plane cavity is employed in this configuration to counteract some of the thermal effect caused by high pump power. An average output power of 3.14W at 590nm is obtained at a pulse repetition frequency of 10kHz.
