Paper Abstract

Mode-locking of LD pumped Nd:YVO4 laser is reported for the first time. The pulse width is about 43ps with the output power of 7mW. This width is much more narrower than the theoretical prediction. Strong amplitude modulation in relaxation oscillation is observed at the very low pump brightness. By prelase Q-switching, single-axial-mode lasers with peak power of 50W is achieved. These results can be improved to higher level by optimum designing of systems.
