|Abstract:||We report on a novel method based on intracavity spontaneous mode locking to precisely measure the group refractive indices and temperature dependence of refractive index of Nd : YVO(4) crystal at the wavelength of 1064 nm. All the experimental results are found to agree very well with the most recent measured values. We also confirm that the developed method is applicable to measuring the group refractive indices and the temperature dependence of the refractive indices of other vanadate crystals, as well as nonlinear crystals.
