Continuous-wave Nd:YVO4 self-Raman lasers operating at 1109nm, 1158nm and 1231nm.

Abstract

Several continuous-wave Nd:YVO(4) self-Raman lasers based on the primary and secondary Raman transitions of YVO(4) (893cm(-1) and 379cm(-1) respectively) are reported in this paper. Laser outputs were obtained at a wavelength of 1109nm, 1158nm and 1231nm with maximum output powers of 1.0W, 700mW and 540mW respectively. The respective absorbed pump power to Raman output power conversion efficiencies were measured at 8.4%, 5.4%, and 5.4%.
