1. A diode pumped, multi axial mode, intracavity nonlinearly-converted laser, comprising:

  • at least two resonator mirrors defining a resonator cavity;

    a laser crystal positioned in the resonator cavity;

    a nonlinear conversion apparatus positioned in the resonator cavity; and

    a diode pump source optically coupled to and supplying a pump beam to the laser crystal and producing a laser crystal beam with a plurality of axial modes that are incident on the nonlinear conversion apparatus to produce a nonlinearly converted output beam, the output beam having a % RMS noise of less than 3%, the diode pump source configured to be coupled to a power supply.
