Paper Abstract

Three Nd:GdVO4 crystals with Nd3+doped concentrations of 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 at% were involved in the experiment. Their laser characteristics at 1.34 μm were experimentally tested with a diode-end-pumped configuration and a simple plane-parallel cavity. Maximum output powers of 7.3 W, 8.35 and 9.47 W were achieved, respectively. The thermal stress resistances of these crystals were calculated according to the experimental data.
