A detailed spectroscopic study with crystal-field analysis of the doped laser crystal Nd:GdVO4 is presented. The crystal field is expanded in terms of operators transforming as the irreducible representation of the Td group. This allows us to interpret the crystal-field parameters in terms of a simple point-ion model. A similar analysis of Nd:YVO4 is also made for comparison.
