Nd3+:GdCa4O(BO3)3, i.e., Nd:GdCOB, is a new self-frequency-doubling laser crystal. By using a GaAs saturable absorber as a passive Q-switched, the Q-switched Nd:GdCOB laser at 0.53 μm is successfully realized. Meanwhile, the pulse width and the single pulse energy are measured and the numerical solutions of the coupling wave rate equations are in agreement with the experimental results. © 2002 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
