Abstract

We report the first cw intracavity crystalline Raman laser operating at the second-Stokes wavelength. Approximately 950mW emission is obtained at 1308nm from a Nd:GdVO4 self-Raman laser, with an overall (diode to 1308nm) conversion efficiency of 6.8%. By intracavity sum-frequency mixing the first- and second-Stokes lines, 1027mW emission at 620nm is demonstrated with an overall (diode-to-visible) conversion efficiency of 4.9%.
