Abstract
We present the design of a 0.5 GHz linewidth 589 nm master laser by direct Raman shift from a commercially available solid state green laser, done in a single mode fiber. The laser design would be a breakthrough because it would allow a large number of currently unavailable lasing wavelengths to be reached in solid state devices. Our purpose is to produce 0.2-0.5 W CW at 589 nm, to seed a Raman amplifier scheme and achieve 10-15 W CW output at 589 nm. Our simulations show that > 0.5 W may be obtained with a 10 W 532 nm pump laser and sets of appropriately steep Fiber Bragg Gratings which resonate only the Raman Stokes.
