Study of amplitude noise in a continuous-wave intracavity frequency-doubled Raman laser
International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Pacific Rim (28 August - 1 September 2011 : Sydney)
Proceedings of the International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (Pacific Rim IQEC/CLEO 2011) incorporating ACOLS and ACOFT, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 28 August - 01 September 2011, p.303-305
We study the temporal amplitude stability of a continuous-wave (CW) intracavity frequency-doubled self-Raman Nd:GdVO4 laser (yellow laser), and compare to a CW intracavity frequency-doubled Nd:GdVO4 laser (green laser). Both experimental and theoretical results indicate that at high pump powers the yellow laser shows strong amplitude fluctuations (peak to peak >20%) similar to that in the simple green laser. However, for lower powers there is a regime where the yellow laser exhibits much lower (peak to peak <1%) amplitude noise.
