We have demonstrated the highest conical refraction (CR) laser output power to date by placing a CR crystal inside of a diode-pumped Nd:YVO laser cavity. The CR crystal did not have a significant influence on laser output power as well as efficiency. The CR laser produced the maximum output power of 3.68 W with the slope efficiency of 42 % and opti...

We report on the thermal lensing effect study in a 1063-nm Nd:GdVO4 laser with in-band diode pumping at 912 nm. The thermal lensing focal power was determined using the experimentally measured values of the laser beam width and beam quality factor (M²). The maximum observed thermal lens dioptric power was 9 m⁻¹ at 11.3 W of output power (18.87 W of...

Two dual-wavelength operation regimes of a diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser were demonstrated at 1064.1 & 1073.1 and 1064.1 & 1085.3 nm with two intracavity birefringent plates. The output power ratio of the dual-wavelength output could be freely adjusted. The highest total output power was 1.44 W under the dual-wavelength condition with 1:1 power ratio...

Discrete multi-wavelength operation of a diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser at four different wavelengths was demonstrated using a single birefringent filter plate.

We report on the first semiconductor saturable absorber mirror mode-locked Nd:GdVO4 laser directly diode-pumped at 912 nm. The laser generated 10.14 W of averaged output power at 1063 nm with the pulse width of 16 ps at the repetition rate of 85.2 MHz. The optical-to-optical efficiency and slope efficiency in the mode-locked regime were calculated...

We report on the performance of a continuous-wave Nd:GdVO4 laser in-band diode-pumped at 912 nm with high output power and excellent beam quality.

The laser threshold was ∼2.04 W of the absorbed pump power, and the laser output b...

Selectable and discretely tunable multi-wavelength diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser operating at 1064.0, 1073.1, and 1085.2 nm was demonstrated using a single intracavity birefringent plate.

We have demonstrated what we believe is the first continuous wave neodymium-doped potassium gadolinium tungstate crystal (Nd:KGW) laser with hot-band diode pumping at ∼910 nm. This pumping wavelength reduced the quantum defect by >46% as compared to conventional ∼810 nm pumping and resulted in significantly lower thermal lensing. The laser produced...

This paper proposes a novel design for a high angular tolerance thin profile solar concentrator comprised of a wedge prism and diffraction gratings. A concentrated broad solar spectrum of up to 500 nm can be achieved by utilizing two diffraction gratings located on the top and bottom surfaces of the wedge prism. The gratings diffract the incident l...

A laser system with low output power using a volume Bragg grating (VBG) of photothermal refractive glass and of high diffraction efficiency (0.994) as one of the end mirrors is demonstrated. The minute absorption of the VBG causes changes in various aspects of the laser performance including laser output power, shifting of laser wavelength, chirped...
