Abstract

We report for the first time on the efficient continuous-wave and mode-locked laser operation of a diode-pumped Yb:Gd0.64Y0.36VO4 laser. cw output power of 855 mW with a slope efficiency of 45% with respect to the absorbed pump power was demonstrated for the 2.1%-doped crystal. In mode-locked regime with SESAM as passive shutter pulses as short as 100 fs were obtained.
