(Ho,Tm,Er):YAG single crystals of high optical quality suitable for 2.09-μm laser operation have been grown by the Czochralski method. Accurate crystal composition was obtained by new analytical technique. This technique enables the determination of the effective distribution coefficients for the yttrium as well as the other rare-earth ions incorporated into the garnet lattice. Lattice parameter and absorption spectra of the grown crystals are reported together, along with results of cw laser performances.
