Abstract

Nd:Sr5(VO4)3Cl has been successfully lased using a Ti:sapphire pump laser operating at 810 nm. A slope efficiency of 52% for the 1.065 mum laser line and a lasing threshold of only a few tens of milliwatts have been measured. These favorable results are comparable to another Nd-doped vanadate apatite, Sr5(VO4)3F. A brief survey of the spectroscopy of Nd3+ in Sr5(VO4)3Cl, Sr5(VO4)3F, and Ca5(VO4)3F reveals properties which suggest the vanadate-based apatite crystals as a whole may represent a useful new class of Nd-laser hosts.
