We report an intracavity frequency-doubled Q-switched self-Raman yellow laser at 587 nm. A composite Nd:YVO4 crystal was utilized as self-Raman gain medium. The maximum average output power of yellow light obtained was 1.5 W at the incident pump power of 30 W and at a repetition rate of 50 kHz, corresponding to the optical conversion efficiency of 5%. The shortest pulse width, the maximum pulse energy and the highest peak power were measured to be 5.8 ns, 46.7 μJ and 5.9 kW, respectively. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
