Paper Abstract

The absorption spectrum from 300 to 1000 nm and emission spectrum from 960 to 1450 nm of Nd:LuVO4 crystal were measured. A LD-end-pumped passive Q-switched Nd:LuVO4 laser was reported. With a Cr4+:YAG crystal as the saturable absorber, the maximum average output power was measured to be 4.58 W, and the corresponding optical conversion efficiency was 24.0 %, with the pulse energy, peak power, and pulse width being 36.6 μJ, 436.2 W, and 84 ns, respectively.
