Abstract
The paper discusses some directions for improvement of efficiency and power scaling of Nd lasers: (1) the direct pmping into the emitting level 4F3/2; (2) the use of concentrated Nd laser materials; (3) new laser materials, particularly ceramic materials; (4) advanced laser resonator design.
