Garnet laser crystals including neodymium doped YAG, YGG, CNGG and Lu3ScxGa5-xO12 (0 < x < 2) are investigated including their growth and characterizations. By the Czochralski and optical floating zone methods, the garnet laser crystals were grown. Their structural, thermal and continuous-wave laser performance was studied and compared with each other. The passively Q-switched and mode-locked fetomsecond lasers were obtained. All the results presented here show that the garnet laser crystals are a series of important laser gain materials for the generation of pulsed lasers.
