We report the development of a new laser material, Nd:Lu:YLiF4 (Nd:LuYLF), that presents a higher Nd concentration than Nd:LuLF, and a spectral broadening of the emission linewidth, 24% greater than Nd:YLF. No other significant differences were found in the spectroscopic or CW laser parameters of the these laser materials. In QCW diode pumped laser operation, an output power of 4.4 W was obtained for 14 W of pumping power.
