1. A diode pumped, intracavity doubled laser, comprising:

  • at least two resonator mirrors defining a resonator cavity;

    an Nd;

    YVO4 laser crystal positioned in the resonator cavity;

    an LBO doubling crystal positioned in the resonator cavity;

    a diode pump source supplying a pump beam to the laser crystal and producing a laser crystal beam incident on the doubling crystal to produce a frequency doubled output beam with an output power of at least 1 watt, wherein a TEM00 mode size in the laser crystal is smaller than a pump beam diameter in the laser crystal and the diode pump source is configured to be coupled to a power supply.
