摘要：The continuous wave and pulsed laser performances of a laser-diode-end- pumped c-cut Nd:Lu0.1Y0.9VO4crystal have been demonstrated for the first time. The small emission cross section and appropriate upper level lifetime result in the c-cut Nd:Lu0.1Y0.9VO4crystals having excellent pulsed laser performance. When the pulse repetition rate was 6.4 kHz, the shortest pulse width, the largest pulse energy and the highest peak power were found to be 1.9 ns, 104.7 μJ and 55.1 kW, respectively, using a Cr4+:YAG crystal as the saturable absorber. These results were much better than those for an a-cut Nd:Lu0.1Y0.9VO4crystal under the same conditions. © 2013 Astro Ltd.
