Abstract
Laser crystals with disordered structure present a series of advantages for diode pumping or short pulse generation as compared with ordered crystal. Such a system proved to be calcium lithium niobium gallium garnet (CLNGG) doped with Nd3+. The papers present the growth and x-ray analysis of specially doped CLNGG. Very few spectroscopic data on this system have been previously published. The paper present low temperature absorption spectra, site selective excitation and lifetime measurements of Nd3+ in CLNGG. At least four distinct nonequivalent centers are observed, the spectral lines for every center presenting a disordered Gaussian shape. based on structural, spectral static and emission dynamics data an attempt of modeling the structure of these centers is proposed.
