Abstract

We realized an efficient diode-pumped Nd:LuVO4 continuous-wave (CW) laser operating at 916nm. Laser experiments with 0.5at.% Nd-doped Nd:LuVO4 crystals of various lengths and cutting directions were also investigated. The maximum output power of 930mW was obtained with a slope efficiency of 27.2% and an optical conversion efficiency of 20.8% at the absorbed pump power of 4.5W. The laser experiment shows that Nd:LuVO4 crystal can be used for an efficient diode-pumped laser system.
