We report for the first time (to our knowledge) cw orange–yellow emission at 589 nm from a compact double-end diffusion-bonded Nd 3 + : LuVO 4 self-Raman laser with intracavity frequency doubling in LiB 3 O 5 , pumped by an 880 nm diode laser. A 3.5 W cw orange–yellow emission with an overall diode-to-visible conversion efficiency of 13.3% is achieved through the use of an 18-mm-long double-ended diffusion-bonded Nd 3 + : LuVO 4 crystal. The M 2 factors are 1.35 and 1.74 in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions, respectively.
