Abstract

We demonstrate a diode-pumped cw Raman laser in H2 with photon-conversion efficiency of (66±8)%. Pumped by an injection-locked diode laser at 792 nm, the Stokes laser produces a peak output power of ~16mW at 1180 nm. Accompanying the high Stokes power are deviations from the existing theory, which are believed to be caused by the thermal-lensing effect of the Raman gas.
