Some interest has been directed recently to neodymium doped crystals with strong inhomogeneous broadening of absorption bands which are believed to be better suited for diode pumping than the crystals with ordered lattice. The disordered Nd-doped crystals may be obtained in two ways. The first one is to introduce a structural disorder in ordered lattice by substituting partially one or more cations by cations with different charges. Alternatively, the compounds with inherently disordered structure are synthesized and doped with Nd. We consider two wide families of compounds of general formulae ABC_{3}O_{7} and ABCO_{4} where A stands for Ca, Sr, Ba, B is Y or rare earth and C stands for Ga or Al. Both the families form the crystals with inherently disordered structure and can accept an appreciable amount of Nd. Results of structural and spectroscopic investigations are used to determine material's parameters relevant to laser performance. Comparison of several disordered crystals is made and their suitability for diode pumping is discussed.
