Abstract

In this paper, series crystals Nd:Gd0.8La0.2VO4, Nd:Gd0.6La0.4VO4, and Nd:Gd0.45La0.55VO4 were grown by the Czochralski method. The structure and lattice constants of the series crystals were measured. The morphology of Nd:Gd0.8La0.2VO4 is discussed, and it is composed of {100} and {101} simple forms. The thermal expansion and specific heat of the Nd:Gd0.8La0.2VO4 crystal were also measured. The absorption and emission spectra of the Nd:Gd0.8La0.2VO4 and Nd:Gd0.6La0.4VO4 crystals were measured at room temperature. The laser outputs at 1.06 and 1.34 μm were determined when a crystal sample of Nd:Gd0.8La0.2VO4 was pumped by a laser diode at 808 nm, and the visible green and red laser outputs of the intracavity frequency double at 0.53 and 0.67 μm were determined when nonlinear KTiOPO4 and LiB3O5 crystals were used.
