Abstract
Crystal growth and characterization, optical properties and laser action in ASN - a new laser material - are reported. Compared with the related compound LNA, ASN crystals have the significant advantage to growth spontaneously along the [MATH] crystal direction, which is the optimal one for the laser effect. ASN has also the broadest tunability range so far reported for a neodymium activated laser crystal.
