Abstract

We obtained 2.5 W of single-frequency TEM00 output at 532 nm using a Brewster-angled LBO crystal for intracavity second-harmonic generation in a diode-bar-pumped Nd:YAG laser. By inserting a thin uncoated étalon, the 1061.4-nm laser transition can be selected, generating 1.6 W of output at 530.7 nm.
