Efficient intracavity second-harmonic generation (SHG) has been realized in a new Li-doped GdCa4O(BO3)3 (GdCOB) crystal. 2.55 W CW SHG output power was obtained with an optical conversion efficiency of 19.6%, while the effective intracavity SHG efficiency was determined to be 44%. Compared to that of undoped GdCOB crystal, the effective SHG efficiency of the Li-doped GdCOB crystal was found to increase by 12.5%.
