Effective noise reduction in a diode-pumped intracavity-doubled Nd:YVO4 laser is achieved with a novel cavity design in which a birefringent filter is formed with off-axially cut Nd:YVO4 and KTP. 20-mW green output with relative intensity noise of less than-120 dB/Hz was obtained under 290-mW pumping by a broad-area laser diode.
