The effects of the application of a transverse, homogeneous, steady magnetic field up to 28,000 G on the spectrum and intensity of the output of a Nd3+ doped CaWO4 laser at room temperature have been studied. With the maximum field available a shift of the lasing transition lines of 0.25A towards longer wavelengths is measured. The intensities of the lines are unaffected. These results are independent of the pumping level and the relative orientation of the laser rod and the lines of the magnetic field.
