Abstract

Spectroscopic properties and cw laser performance of a new Yb 0.0054 : Y 0.3481 Gd 0.6465 V O 4 mixed crystal are reported. A sizable bistability is displayed in the laser operation with a bistability range of 1.9 3.4 W in terms of absorbed pump power, in which the coexistence and switching of the σ and π polarization states occur accompanied by wavelength shifting upon decreasing the pump power.
