Polarization bistability associated with 4F3/2→4I11/2 and 4F3/2→4I13/2 transitions in Nd:YVO4 laser with intra-cavity periodically poled lithium niobate Bragg modulator.

Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate polarization bistability in a dual-wavelength Nd:YVO4 laser at 1064 nm (4F3/2→4I11/2) and 1342 nm (4F3/2→4I13/2) by using an intra-cavity electro-optic periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) Bragg modulator to control the loss at 1064 nm. An inverse hysteresis switch was observed between 1064 nm and 1342 nm lasers with… (More)
