Abstract.  A polycrystalline ceramic based on an Nd,Y:SrF2 single crystal was successfully fabricated and its laser performance was experimentally investigated. We obtained dual-wavelength continuous-wave operation at the wavelengths of 1050.5 and 1058.0 nm. The maximum output power and slope efficiency were 750 mW and 31.5%, respectively. In the passively Q-switched operation, the shortest pulse with a 169-ns duration was also obtained, and the corresponding maximum repetition rate and single pulse energy were 7.3 kHz and 19.2  μJ, respectively.
