Abstract

Continuous-wave operation of a diamond Raman laser is demonstrated. Low-birefringence synthetic single-crystal diamond is used and is intracavity pumped by a Nd : YVO 4 laser. A cw output power of 200 mW is achieved at the Raman wavelength ( 1240 nm ), and 1.6 W of on-time output power is obtained in quasi-cw mode. Losses in the diamond ( 1 % per pass) and thermal effects in the Nd : YVO 4 limit the efficiency.
