Abstract: The stimulated-emission cross sections at 1064 and 1342 nm in Nd:YVO4 were determined by measurement of laser thresholds as a function of output mirror reflectivity. Small samples of Nd:YVO4 and Nd:YAG were end pumped at room temperature with a CW 514.5-nm argon ion laser in an almost identical geometrical arrangement which permitted comparative values to be obtained. Assuming that the pumping quantum efficiency of Nd:YVO is similar to that of Nd:YAG, the stimulated-emission cross sections obtained for the 1064- and 1342-nm transitions were respectively 12 x 10 to the -19th and 6.0 x 10 to the -19th/sq cm.
