Abstract

We present for the first time a Nd:YVO4 laser emitting at 1064nm intracavity pumped at 912nm by a Nd:GdVO4 laser. We carried out a model to design the system properly, and laser performance was experimentally investigated. Intracavity sum-frequency mixing at 912 and 1064nm was then realized in a BiBO crystal to reach the blue range. We obtained a cw output power of 155mW at 491nm with a pump laser diode emitting 20W at 808nm.
