A solid-state laser material based on highly transparent Yb[sup 3+]-doped scandia (Sc[sub 2]O[sub 3]) ceramic was developed using nanocrystalline technology and the nonpress vacuum sintering method. Continuous wave laser oscillations were obtained at around 1041 and 1094 nm using a 2.5 at. % Yb[sup 3+]:Sc[sub 2]O[sub 3] ceramic plate. Broadband lasing spectra were observed. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    A new setup for fast wavelength switching of an Yb:YAG disk laser uses a lithium niobate Lyot filter. It is modeled by the Jones matrix formalism and it is tested experimentally. Applying a high voltage to the Lyot filter leads to stepwise wavelength switching of the laser with a minimum step...
