This paper will summarize our work on rare-earth nanomaterials for infrared photonic applications. Our research focuses the use of solvothermal methods to prepare these materials in particulate and molecular form with controlled physical and chemical characteristics. Thermochemical computations are used to facilitate direct crystallization of the desired material from the solvothermal medium. The impact of the chemical and physical characteristics of nanopowder and molecular characteristics on optical properties will be discussed in reference to conventional glasses and single crystals.
