Abstract
Single crystals of neodymium doped SrLaAlO4 have been grown by the Czochralski method and investigated using the methods of optical spectroscopy. Absorption band centered at 806nm is particularly intense in this crystal and this feature seems to be advantageous for side pumping with GaAlAs laser diode bars. Available spectroscopic data indicate that excited states absorption might be of low importance in SrLaAlO4:Nd.
