Paper Abstract

We report on the experimental studies of a diode-end-pumped CW Nd:GdVO4 laser. CW output power of 19.8 W at 1064 nm and a slope efficiency of 58.5% were obtained under the pump power of 39.5 W. The beam quality M2 at maximum output power was measured to be around 2.62. The thermal focal length in Nd:GdVO4 crystal under the pump power from 22 W to 40.6 W was measured.
