Room-temperature cw laser oscillations at 1030 and 1075 nm wavelengths were demonstrated for the TEM[sub 00] mode with Yb[sup 3+]:Y[sub 2]O[sub 3] ceramics by LD-pumping. A maximum extraction efficiency of 72% at 1075 nm lasing wavelengths and of 45% at 1030 nm lasing wavelengths were observed. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
