Intracavity second-harmonic generation of a diode-pumped Nd : YLiF 4 ring laser oscillating on the σ-polarized F 3 2 4 I 13 2 4 transition ( λ ω 1314 nm ) with a temperature-tuned periodically poled KTiOPO 4 (ppKTP) crystal is reported, yielding up to 0.92 W tunable ( λ 2 ω = 656 658 nm ) single-frequency output. Evidence of self-mode-locking via cascading nonlinearities is observed when the ppKTP is strongly phase mismatched.
