We realized an efficient diode-pumped Nd : LuVO 4 continuous-wave (CW) laser operating at 916 nm . Laser experiments with 0.5 at . % Nd-doped Nd : LuVO 4 crystals of various lengths and cutting directions were also investigated. The maximum output power of 930 mW was obtained with a slope efficiency of 27.2% and an optical conversion efficiency of 20.8% at the absorbed pump power of 4.5 W . The laser experiment shows that Nd : LuVO 4 crystal can be used for an efficient diode-pumped laser system.
