Paper Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate simple wavelength tuning mechanism of pulsed diode pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser in the grazing incidence geometry. The active material which is thin slab with wedged ends, acts as dispersive element and enables to tune wavelength of the generated radiation either to the commonly used 1063 nm line with π polarization, the 1066 nm line with σ polarization or simultaneous dual wavelength operation, just by tilting the resonator mirror. The detailed characteristics of the laser are presented.
