Crystal Chemistry Approach in Yb Doped Laser Materials
The emergence of new laser crystals has allowed progress in ultrashort-pulsed laser technology and high power lasers. Extensive researches on new Yb3+ doped crystals enable development of all-solid-state femtosecond lasers. Thermo-mechanical properties should be taken into account. The review of the state of the art on the Yb doped laser material for high power and ultrafast pulses generation is presented.
