Investigation on high performance diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers operating at various modes (continuous-wave, Q-switching, and mode-locking) is one of the most active and prosperous areas of laser research and development. In this thesis work, the optical and thermal properties of two novel laser materials, Yb:Y2O3 ceramics and Nd:GdVO4 single crystals and the laser operation characteristics of the DPSS lasers made up of these two laser materials at various modes have been extensively studied.
