Abstract

A diode-pumped simultaneous orthogonally polarized continuous-wave (cw) dual-wavelength Nd:LuVO4 laser based on the F3/24I11/24 transition is experimentally demonstrated. A theoretical analysis has been introduced to determine the threshold conditions for simultaneous orthogonally polarized dual-wavelength laser. Using a polarization beam splitter included resonant cavity in the experiments, simultaneous orthogonal polarized dual-wavelength Nd:LuVO4 laser operation was realized at two close wavelengths near 1060–1070 nm. To our knowledge, this is the first work of realizing simultaneous dual-wavelength Nd:LuVO4 laser operation near 1060–1070 nm.
