Abstract

An efficiency of 8.2% is demonstrated for a diode-pumped passively <i>Q</i>-switched self-stimulated Raman laser with an <i>a</i>-cut mixed vanadate crystal, Nd:Gd<sub>0.8</sub>Y<sub>0.2</sub>VO<sub>4</sub>. At 2.2 W of incident pump power, the self-stimulated Raman laser produces pulses as short as 660 ps at a Stokes wavelength of 1175 nm with 2.7 μJ of energy per pulse at a 66-kHz repetition rate.
