We present a spectroscopic and lasing investigations of the Cr4+:YxLu3−xAl5O12 crystals, a new laser materials for the infrared region of spectrum. The laser action on the Cr4+:Y1.5Lu1.5Al5O12 crystal is demonstrated. The Cr4+:YxLu3−xAl5O12 saturable absorber Q-switch for a diode side-pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser is performed.
