Abstract

1357 nm single-wavelength continuous-wave and passively V3+:YAG Q-switched Nd:YAG ceramic crystal lasers have been experimentally demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. The output power of the continuous-wave laser was as high as 2.4 W under the incident pump power of 14.8 W. The corresponding optical to optical efficiency was about 16.2% and the slope efficiency was about 18.6%. The Q-switched laser remained single-wavelength output with a maximum average output power of 628 mW at the incident pump power of 12.4 W. The corresponding pulse width was 21 ns and the repetition frequency was 15 kHz.
