The absorption spectrum of 2% Nd:Y2O3 has been obtained at room termperature. It has been used to determine the crystalline energy levels.

Through counting the number of Stark components, degeneracies have been determined for oscillator strength calculations.

Overlapping absorption lines were analyzed into their components.

Oscillator strengths have been measured for those well-identified and analyzed transitions in the variable and near ultraviolet regions of the 2% Nd:Y2O3 absorption spectrum.
