This project was initiated to investigate the single crystal growth and laser rod fabrication of 100 oriented NdYVO4. The desired size and quality of the crystals were obtained most advantageously by Czochralski growth methods. We have utilized RF heated iridium crucibles and commercially developed crystal growth equipment to evaluate rapidly many variables. Two growth stations were used continuously. Author
