Spectroscopy on the new laser host crystal NaYF4 doped with Nd indicates that this host has both strong broad absorption bands suitable for diode pumping and an integrated cross-section higher than that of YAG. Ho:NaYF4 shows similar properties with broad emission bands suitable for tunable laser operation.
