Abstract

We demonstrate a laser-diode-pumped Q-switched 1329 nm neodymium-doped calcium-niobium-gallium-garnet (Nd:CNGG) laser using a V:YAG crystal as a saturable absorber. An average output power of 353 mW and a repetition rate of 13.43 kHz for Q-switched pulses were obtained. The pulse width was from 124 to 151.4 ns under different pump powers. Output power of 685 mW was obtained without the V:YAG crystal inserted.
