We report a linear-cavity high-power all-solid-state Q-switched yellow laser. The laser source comprises a diode-side-pumped Nd:YAG module that produces 1064 nm fundamental radiation, an intracavity Ba W O 4 Raman crystal that generates a first-Stokes laser at 1180 nm , and a KTP crystal that frequency doubles the first-Stokes laser to 590 nm . A convex-plane cavity is employed in this configuration to counteract some of the thermal effect caused by high pump power. An average output power of 3.14 W at 590 nm is obtained at a pulse repetition frequency of 10 kHz .
