Different regimes of laser operation and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) for a laser diode (LD)-pumped Pb Mo O 4 : Nd 3 + crystal have been investigated. Under 1.5 W LD pumping, the output power of the Pb Mo O 4 : Nd 3 + laser in the free-running mode at 1056 nm reached 0.65 W with a slope efficiency of up to 53%. Using different Li F : F 2 saturable absorbers, we achieved a maximum pulse energy of 11 μ J at a 1.4 ns pulse duration and a maximum output power of 0.35 W ( 10 μ J ) at a 7 ns pulse width in the passively Q-switched mode. Pb Mo O 4 : Nd 3 + self-Raman-laser operation at 1163 nm (first Stokes) was obtained for the first time, to our knowledge. The self-Raman-laser output pulse energy was measured to be as high as 6 μ J and the pulse duration was estimated to be shorter than 500 ps .
