Abstract

We demonstrate the high-power dual-wavelength laser output with disordered Nd:CNGG laser crystals. Continuous-wave output power of 4.03W was obtained under the incident pump power of 15.62W. In the passively Q-switched operation, the shortest pulse width, largest pulse energy, and highest peak power were achieved to be 12.9ns, 173.16μJ, and 12.3kW, respectively, with Cr4+:YAG crystals as the saturable absorbers. By spectral analysis, the output lasers were found to have dual wavelengths. We believed that the passively Q-switched dual-wavelength laser should be possible to be used as a source for the generation of terahertz radiation.
