Abstract

We report a KGd(WO4)2 Raman laser pumped by a 532nm laser that uses the intracavity nonlinear second harmonic and sum-frequency mixing of the Stokes and fundamental fields in β-barium borate to generate selectable output among eight output wavelengths over the range 266320nm. Output pulse energies of up to 0.22mJ at 10Hz pulse repetition rate and average output powers up to 48mW at 5kHz were achieved.
