Paper Abstract

This paper summaries our effort to develop new Nd3+, Er3+ and Yb3+ doped phosphate laser glasses, which exhibit high strength and low thermal expansion coefficient as well as acceptable optical athermal behavior. Ion-exchange chemical strengthening processes and laser performances of these glasses are presented.
