Neodymium oxide doped laser glass, with compositions commonly used in our laboratory, are sometimes observed to fracture in use. Similar fractures can be produced by illuminating unpumped glass with a laser pulse with sufficient energy and power densities. This is commonly done to establish the durability of laser glass before fabricating finished laser rods from it. (Ref. 1)
