Abstract Lasing of a miniature all-solid-state SRS laser based on a Nd{sup 3+}:SrMoO{sub 4} crystal with a LiF:F{sub 2}{sup -}-passive Q-switch is studied. The dependences of the laser and SRS self-conversion parameters on the initial transmission of the passive Q-switch are studied experimentally and theoretically. Simulation of the lasing kinetics has shown the possibility of nonlinear cavity dumping upon highly efficient SRS self-conversion of laser radiation. An increase in the active medium length from 1 to 3mm resulted in an increase in the energy of the output 1.17-{mu}m SRS radiation from 20 {mu}J to record-high 60 {mu}J at the absorbed multimode diode pump energy of 3.7 mJ.
