Abstract

We describe continuous wave single-frequency operation of an intracavity frequency-doubled Nd:YLF ring laser end-pumped by a fiber-coupled laser diode. Output power of 770 mW has been achieved at 526.5 nm . The amplitude noise of the laser reaches the quantum noise limit for frequencies above 5 MHz , and the phase noise reaches the quantum noise limit for frequencies above 10 MHz . The laser’s emission frequency can be tuned over 12 GHz by using an intracavity Li Ta O 3 electro-optic crystal based Fabry–Perot etalon.
