We report high-power second-harmonic generation of 760 nm laser light from optically-pumped vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser based on quantum dot active medium. The laser generates 1.2 W in fundamental transverse mode with fixed linear polarization. The emission wavelength can be continuously tuned from 738 to 778 nm by using an intra cavity birefringent filter for fundamental radiation without readjustment of phase-matching angle of the nonlinear crystal. The result constitutes a viable alternative for applications requiring broadly tunable high brightness lasers in the 700-800 nm range.
