Abstract

We demonstrate a dual-wavelength laser based on a new laser material-Nd, Gd:YSGG, or Nd:GYSGG for short-for the first time to our knowledge. Besides its attractive properties such as antiradiation, high segregation coefficient, etc., this kind of laser crystal also shows excellent laser performance. For continuous-wave operation, the maximum output power is 10.1 W with the absorbed power of 18.45 W at 808 nm, corresponding to the slope efficiency of nearly 60%. The maximum single pulse energy and peak power reach 277 μJ and 4.6 kW (60 ns) when the absorbed pump power is 11.4 W for acousto-optic Q-switched operation.
