Abstract
Large scale solid state lasers will require single crystal gain elements which, by virtue of requisite size and optical quality, represent a significant challenge to current crystal growth technology. This paper examines these requirements and relates them to crystal growth options. Crystal growth scaling considerations are reviewed and a host material figure of merit for scaling is derived.
