Abstract

We observed the tunability of a 946-nm Nd:YAG microchip laser by using a double-cavity configuration. We shifted the lasers wavelength from 938 to 946 nm by changing the thickness of the air gap. In addition, differences in reflectivity of the output mirror yielded the tunable range of the 946-nm band, with the center oscillation wavelength maintained at 946.1 nm.
