Abstract

Efficient and compact green-yellow laser output at 543 nm is generated by intracavity frequency doubling of a cw diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser at 1086 nm under the condition of suppressing the higher gain transition near 1064 nm. With 14.5 W of diode pump power and the frequency-doubling crystal LiB3O5, as high as 2.35 W of cw output power at 543 nm is achieved, corresponding to an optical-to-optical conversion efficiency of 15.7%; the output power stability over 5 h is better than 2.56%. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest watt-level laser at 543 nm generated by intracavity frequency doubling of a diode pumped Nd:YVO4 laser at 1086 nm.
