Abstract

Single-frequency operation of diode-pumped Nd:YLiF4 and Nd:YVO4 continuous-wave (cw) ring lasers are investigated in the 1.31-1.34μm range, together with their intracavity second-harmonic generation to the red spectral range (0.65-0.67μm) using either BiB3O6 (BiBO), LiB3O5 (LBO) or periodically-poled KTiOPO4 (ppKTP). Smooth singlelongitudinal mode wavelength tuning over ~3-4 nm within the gain bandwidths could be achieved, with a watt-level output at gain centers in the near-IR and red range. Unlike with the birefringence phase-matched crystals, second-harmonic generation using ppKTP leads to various dynamical regimes, from narrow-band continuous-wave to broadband self modelocked operation triggered by ?2: ?2 second-order Kerr-lens cascaded nonlinear interactions.
