The unpolarized and polarized fluorescence spectra of Nd:YVO4 crystal excited by π and σ polarized lights respectively were measured and compared. The characteristics of the Nd:YVO4 laser pumped by a laser diode were studied. A 1064 nm laser with a maximum output power of 1012 mW and a slope efficiency of 53.6 % is obtained at the incident pump power of 1900 mW.
