Abstract

A miniature LiNdP4O12 laser with a compact resonator is reported. Stable cw laser operation at 1.047 μm was obtained in a single-longitudinal and single-transverse mode by coaxial pumping with an argon laser (5145 Å). Threshold pump power was 7.2 mW, and the maximum output power in the single-mode operation was 4 mW. The conditions for single-mode operation were considered in detail experimentally and theoretically.
