Abstract

A diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser was frequency doubled to 0.532μm with an intracavity KTiOPO>4 crystal in a V-cavity arrangement, achieving an output power of 140 W. Acousto-optic Q switching was employed at repetition rates of 10–30 kHz, and the beam quality was assessed at M2≈50 . It was deduced on the basis of our model that the strength of the nonlinear frequency conversion is the main parameter determining the pulse width.
