Nd:YVO4

Nd:YVO4 (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Vanadate) is one of the best commercially available diode-pumped solid-state laser materials with high laser-induced damage threshold and good mechanical and optical properties. Its large stimulated emission cross-section and high absorption of pump laser make Nd:YVO4 an effective crystal for compact, efficient, high power diode-pumped lasers laser. Nd:YVO4 is a go-to choice for highly polarized output at 1342 nm, as the emission line is much stronger than those of alternatives.
