Abstract

Diode-pumped passively Q-switched Nd:GdVO4/Cr^(4+):YAG lasers with a simple flat-flat cavity were demonstrated. The maximum average output power at 1.06 ?m was 1.25 W. The highest peak power and pulse energy were 7.56 kW and 75 ?J, respectively, with the pulse repetition rate of 11.1 kHz and pulse width of 10 ns at the incident pump power of 8 W.
