Abstract: Single crystals of monoclinic BaY2F8, doped with different Nd3+ concentrations, were successfully grown by means of the Czochralski method. Here, we present a polarized infrared (IR) spectroscopic investigation and diode-pumped continuous-wave laser results in the 1 mum wavelength region. Moreover for the first time 1.3 mum laser emission has been characterized. Q-switching results in the 1-mum region are also presented.
