This paper presents measurements of several properties of Nd:YAlO3useful in the design of laser devices. Values for the gains, cross sections, and saturation parameter of the4F_{3/2} rightarrow 4I_{11/2}transitions are presented for principal axis polarizations. Thermal focal lengths, spherical aberration, and astigmatism forA-, B-, andC-axis rodsfrac{1}{4}in in diameter and 3 in long are shown as a function of input power. Pumping efficiencies with krypton and xenon lamps are compared for Nd:YAG, Nd:Cr:YAlO3, and Nd: YAlO3both in the CW and flash-pumped modes. Finally, the effects of varying the Nd concentration in YAlO3from 0.4 to 1.15 percent are discussed.
