Abstract

We report a compact diode-laser pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser with stable dual-wavelength output at 1063 nm and 1065 nm simultaneously. Two types of resonant cavity configurations were presented to support the stable dual-wavelength operation of the laser. Using a polarization beam splitter(PBS) included T-shaped cavity, we obtained a total power output over 5W in two orthogonal polarized beam directions with 4 W in σ polarization (1065.5 nm) and 1W in π polarization (1063.1 nm). By combining a half-wave-plate with the PBS in the laser cavity, a new configuration favoring one beam direction dual-wavelength output with same polarization direction was realized. A phenomenon of further line splitting was observed in both 1065 nm and 1063 nm.
