Abstract

The Czochralski growth of laser-quality Nd3+-doped calcium fluorapatite single crystals and their lasing characterization are reported. Low threshold and high efficiency lasing performances were achieved in both continuous-wave and long pulse laser-pump-laser operation. The effect of concentration quenching on laser performance is discussed.
