The use of disk lasers to pump continuous-wave (cw) intracavity Raman lasers is discussed with a view to power scaling these devices via improved thermal management. Preliminary results for a Nd:YVO4/SrMoO4 Raman laser in this geometry are reported. An output power of 295 mW at the 1st Stokes wavelength of 1175 nm was obtained for 13.2 W absorbed pump power at 808 nm.
