Studies of the spectroscopic and lasing properties of Nd3+-doped LuPO4 are reported. LuPO4 permits incorporation of lanthanide dopants in high concentration. We report the absorption and luminescence properties of Nd3+ ions doped at 10% in this host. Promising laser performance with diode laser pumping is also described.
