A class of Nd-doped mix vanadate crystals Nd:YxGd1-xVO4 showed high potential in tailoring laser parameters for various applications with different Y and Gd composition ratios. Important thermal and thermo-optical properties, such as thermal conductivity and the temperature dependence of the index of refraction, were measured in these crystals along a-axis and c-axis. Results will be compared to well-known Nd:YAG, Nd:YVO4, and Nd:GdVO4 crystals.
