Continuous-wave (cw) mode-locking of a diode-pumped Nd:Lu(0.5)Gd(0.5)VO(4) mixed crystal laser is reported for the first time to our knowledge with a simply compact three-mirror cavity. Stable pulses as short as 5.5 ps were generated at a repetition rate of 147 MHz. At the absorbed pump power of 16 W, a mode-locked laser with average output power of 5.31 W was obtained, giving an optical conversion efficiency of 33.2%, and a slope efficiency of 46.7%.
