Title: Re{sup 3+} : YAG laser ceramics: synthesis, optical properties and laser characteristics

Abstract

Highly transparent yttrium aluminium garnet ceramics doped with holmium or ytterbium or neodymium are synthesised. The ceramics were made of a mixture of nanopowders synthesised by laser ablation. The structural and spectral characteristics of ceramics are studied. In the samples with holmium Ho{sup 3+} and neodymium Nd{sup 3+} ions, lasing was achieved with a slope efficiency of 40% and 35.3%, respectively; the maximum laser power exceeded 4 W. The internal absorption and scattering losses for 1% Nd : YAG ceramics are estimated to be 1.6 × 10{sup -2} cm{sup -1}. (extreme light fields and their applications)
