Abstract
Laser action of Nd3+ doped GdLiF4 (GLF) has been demonstrated for the first time for both pulsed and CW laser pumped operation. A slope efficiency of 60% was obtained in either manner of operation. Detailed comparison studies show that the spectroscopic properties and laser performance of Nd:GLF are very similar to those of Nd:YLF. GLF, on the other hand, can be doped with much higher Nd3+ concentration.
