Abstract

We report efficient, diode-pumped, self-frequency doubling (SFD) in the newly developed laser crystal Nd3+:YCa4O(BO3)(3). More than 350 mW of fundamental output power at 1060 nm was achieved with a slope efficiency of 51%. With one watt of absorbed pump power, 62 mW of green cw laser emission at 530 nm was observed with proper phase matching. This initial performance, and the good optical properties of the crystalline host, are encouraging for the development of a high power diode-pumped SFD visible light laser source.
