Paper Abstract

We report the optical and lasing characteristics of neodymium doped lanthanum scandium borate. Nd:LSB microchip laser devices were fabricated from the conventional Czochralski pulling method with different doping concentration. The space group of Nd:LSB was studied with their optical characteristics. In the lasing experiment the hot-band pumping, 4F3/2, showed an improvement of slope efficiency and threshold comparing to the conventional pumping to 4F5/2 absorption band.
