A solid-state laser material based on highly transparent cubic Nd[sup 3+]:Lu[sub 2]O[sub 3] ceramic was developed using nanocrystalline technology and a nonpress vacuum sintering method. Spectroscopic properties of this ceramic laser material were investigated. At room temperature under single-laser diode pumping, efficient continuous wave laser oscillation was demonstrated at two wavelengths of the [sup 4]F[sub 3/2]→[sup 4]I[sub 11/2] channel. The potential application of such a laser material was also discussed.
