Abstract

High quality single crystals of neodymium doped barium fluorapatite have been grown by the Czochralski technique and evaluated as an optical gain medium. A product of the emission cross section and lifetime of Nd3+ luminescence of more than 1.8x10(-22) cm(2) s at 1055 nm, and laser performance with slope efficiency up to 65% have been obtained.
