Abstract

We report for the first time (to our knowledge) cw orange–yellow emission at 589nm from a compact double-end diffusion-bonded Nd3+:LuVO4 self-Raman laser with intracavity frequency doubling in LiB3O5, pumped by an 880nm diode laser. A 3.5W cw orange–yellow emission with an overall diode-to-visible conversion efficiency of 13.3% is achieved through the use of an 18-mm-long double-ended diffusion-bonded Nd3+:LuVO4 crystal. The M2 factors are 1.35 and 1.74 in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions, respectively.
