摘要：The characteristics of a barium tungstate (BaWO4) anti-Stokes Raman laser at 968 nm are studied theoretically and experimentally. The BaWO4 Raman resonator is pumped by a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm with its axis tilted from the pumping laser axis. The non-collinear phase matching for the generation of the first anti-Stokes wave in the same BaWO4 crystal is achieved. The output energy, temporal and spectral informations are investigated. At a pumping laser energy of 128 mJ, the anti-Stokes laser energy obtained is 2.2 mJ. The second Stokes radiation at 1324 nm as well as the first and the third Stokes waves at 1180 nm and 1509 nm is also generated at the same time. The maximum total Stokes energy output is 42.5 mJ. In the theory, the anti-Stokes laser intensity expression as a function of the pumping and the first Stokes laser intensities for the extracavity anti-Stokes Raman laser is deduced. The properties of the anti-Stokes Raman laser are simulated theoretically by solving the rate equations of the extracavity Raman laser and using the derived expression. The theoretical results are in good agreement with the experimental results. (C) 2013 Optical Society of America
