Polarized transmission spectrum of 5%Nd:YCOB between 350 nm and 1000 nm corresponding to a propagation along the Z-axis of the dielectric frame (X, Y, Z); the crystal length along the Z-axis is 4.11 mm ; the dashed spectrum refers to the (X)-polarization (//) and the continuous spectrum corresponds to the Y-polarization (⊥) ; the arrows denote the selected transitions for the angular distribution measurement of absorption.

Perpendicular (⊥, Y-axis) (dots) and parallel (//, XZ plane) (squares) components of the absorption coefficient measured as a function of the angle θ in the mirror plane m of 5%Nd:YCOB for seven electronic transitions of Nd3+: 4I9/2 → (2I11/2 + 4D5/2) at λ = 355 nm (a), 4I9/22K13/2 at λ = 534 nm (b), 4I9/2 → (2G7/2 + 4G5/2) at λ = 595 nm (c), 4I9/24F9/2 at λ = 686 nm (d), 4I9/24F7/2 at λ = 742 nm (e), 4I9/24F5/2 + 2H9/2 at λ = 812 nm (f), and 4I9/24F3/2 at λ = 887 nm (g). The continuous lines stand for the fit of the experimental data. (X, Y, Z) is the dielectric frame and (Xabs ,Yabs ,Zabs ) the absorption frame. θabs is the oriented angle between the X- and Xabs -axes; the dashed radii and concentric circles at 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 cm−1 stand for the polar scale.
