Abstract

The performance of a diode end-pumped passively Q-switched dual-wavelength Nd:GYSGG laser operating at 1057.28 and 1060.65 nm with graphene oxide as the saturable absorber was demonstrated. The maximum dual-wavelength average output power of 521 mW was achieved under the absorbed pump power of 5.4 W, corresponding to the optical-to-optical conversion and slope efficiency of 9.8% and 21%, respectively. The minimum pulse width was 115 ns with a pulse repetition rate of 338 kHz.
