Paper Abstract

The production of the laser host material YVO4 via high temperature solution growth (HTSG) is described as a facile alternative for producing optical quality crystals for research. The effects of dopant concentration on optical absorption properties in 0.7% and 3% Nd:YVO4 crystals are discussed. The rare earth ions Ho3+ and Er3+ have been doped into YVO4 with the HTSG method, and inaugural optical properties of Ho0.04Y0.96VO4 are presented.
