We improved the electro-optical cavity-dumped Nd:GdVO4 laser performance at high repetition rates by employing continuous-grown GdVO4/Nd:GdVO4 composite crystal under 879 nm diode-laser pumping. A constant 3.8 ns duration pulsed laser was obtained and the repetition rate could reach up to 100 kHz with a maximum average output power of 13.1 W and a slope efficiency of 56.4%, corresponding to a peak power of 34.4 kW.
