Abstract

Continuous-wave operation at 588nm of a diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser with intracavity Raman shifting [in KGd(WO4)2, KGW] and frequency-doubling (in LiB3O5, LBO) is reported. A maximum cw power at 588nm of 704mW was obtained for diode pump powers of 13.7W. Quasi-cw yellow powers up to 1.57W at a 50% duty cycle (to reduce thermal load in the laser crystal) indicate that power scaling to over 1W is feasible.
