In this paper, we report the growth of laser crystal Nd : GdVO4 by the Czochralski method, and discuss the morphology of the crystal. The polarization absorption and emission spectra of Nd:GdVO4 were measured. The lifetime of the Nd:GdVO4 at 1064 nm is 100 μs. An output power op to 1W at 1064 nm has been achieved with a 3 mm × 3 mm × 1 mm crystal sample when pumped by a 1.9 W cw laser diode.
