Continuous output from a Nd : YVO 4 crystal around 1073 nm was studied. The output of 1064 nm was sup pressed with a Type I phase-matching LiB 3 O 5 (LBO) crystal rotated by 45 ° . With a pump power of 4.5 W , a 300 mW continuous output at 1073 nm was achieved for what we believe is the first time, and the optical-to-optical efficiency was 7%. With an adjustable LBO crystal, the wavelength is tunable from 1073.2 to 1073.5 nm . Even simultaneous output of 1066 and 1073 nm was realized by adjusting the LBO crystal. The experiments proved related theoretical analysis.
