A Nd:YVO4 laser was locked with a chirped volume Bragg grating to achieve single-longitudinal-mode output. Tuning was performed from 1,063 to 1,065 nm by translating the grating and a maximum output power of 4 W was obtained. With a Cr 4+:YAG saturable absorber, Q-switched pulses with 4 ns and a pulse energy of 5.7 lJ were achieved which could be frequency doubled in PPKTP with a conversion efficiency exceeding 50 %.
