We report on a GaInNAs/GaAs semiconductor disk laser frequency-doubled to produce orange-red radiation. The disk laser operates at a fundamental wavelength of 1224 nm and delivers an output power of 2.68 W in the visible region with an optical-to-optical conversion efficiency of 7.4%. The frequency-converted signal could be launched into a singlemode optical fiber with 70-78% coupling efficiency, demonstrating good beam quality for the visible radiation. Using a Fabry-Pérot glass etalon the emission wavelength could be tuned over an 8 nm spectral range.
