The polarized absorption and emission spectra of Pr3+ ions in NaY(MoO4)2 single crystal were investigated. The standard and modified Judd–Ofelt theory have been applied to the measured optical absorption intensities to determine the spectroscopic parameters, including the Judd–Oflet intensity parameters Ωt (t=2,4,6), the radiative transition rates, branching ratios, and emission cross-sections for various excited levels of Pr3+ ions. In samples with Pr3+ ions concentration of 2.00×1020 cm-3, the excitation of the 1D2 manifold decays non-radiatively by the electric dipole–dipole transfer between Pr3+ neighbors. The good spectroscopic properties show the possible application of the Pr3+ doped NaY(MoO4)2 crystal as a solid-state laser.
