Abstract
THE HIGH TEMPERATURE SOLUTION (HTS) METHOD WILL BE USED TO PRODUCE CRYSTALS OF Li6Y(BO3)3 DOPED WITH Nd+3 FOR SOLID STATE LASER APPLICATIONS. A SUITABLE SOLVENT SYSTEM BASED ON LiF-LiBO3 WILL BE DEVELOPED TO GIVE OPTIMUM SIZE CRYSTALS. THE EFFECT OF Nd+3 CONCENTRATION ON CRYSTAL GROWTH AND LASER PROPERTIES WILL BE EVALUATED.
