Abstract
We measured the tunability of a Nd:YAG, 946-nm microchip laser as the function of the laser crystal length and the reflectivity of the output mirror. A decrease in the tunable range is observed with the decrease in the reflectivity of the output mirror and the crystal length. The center oscillation wavelength is estimated to be ~946.1 nm. The oscillation wavelength varies between ~945.8 and ~946.4 nm for our experiments.
