Abstract
Based on the rate equation of four-level system and numerical simulation, the phase-matching characteristic of laser-diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4/KBe2BO3F2(KBBF) solid-state laser has been studied. The influences of pumping and oscillating spot size to output power and laser threshold with different gain medium are studied. Compared to CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) and β-BaB2O4 (BBO), the phase-matching characteristics of the nonlinear optical crystal KBBF are carried out through numerical simulation. For type I and type II phase-matching condition, KBBF which is more easy to realize ultraviolet laser output has shorter transmission bandwidth and broader tunable phase-matching angle than CLBO and BBO. It is useful to optimize and select the parameters of such systems.
