Nd:GdVO4 is a promising material for diode pumped lasers. Similar to the more well-known Nd:YVO4 crystal, Nd:GdVO4 crystal also exhibits high gain, low threshold, and high absorption coefficients at pumping wavelengths. Nd:GdVO4 has the additional advantage over Nd:YVO4 of a much higher thermal conductivity.  For CW lasing at 1.06 um and 1.34 um and intracavity doubling with KTP and LBO, the gadolinium vanadate have produced a higher slope efficiency or optical conversion than Nd:YVO4.


Advantage:

• Large stimulated emission cross section at laser wavelength;
• High absorption coefficient and wide bandwidth at pump wavelength;
• Low dependency on pump wavelength;
• Good thermal conductivity;
• Low lasing threshold and high slope efficiency;
• High laser induced damage threshold;

• Strongly-polarized laser output.
