Paper Abstract

Single crystals of Nd(3+):SrGdGa3O7 (SGGM) have been grown and characterized as candidate crystals for improved diode pumped lasers. The width of the 809 nm absorption in this disordered oxide crystal is 8 nm FWHM. The fluorescence lifetime of the 4F3/2 - 4I11/2 transition at 1.06 micron is 245 microsec. Dopant levels of 4 percent Nd have been achieved while maintaining high optical quality material.
