Paper Abstract

A new kind of Yb3+ borate laser glass containing high valency cations was reported in this work. B2O3-ZnO and B2O3-BaO glasses were chosen as the base glasses of Yb$3+)-BaO glasses were chosen as the base glasses of Yb3+ ions. Yb3+ ion has a large integrated absorption area in the former and longer fluorescent lifetime in the latter. The effect of Al3+, La3+, Ti3+, Zr4+, Nb4+ Ta5+, W6+ high valency cations on the absorption and fluorescent behaviors of Ba2O3-ZnO- RmOn-Yb2O3 and B2O3-BaO-RmOn-Yb2O3 glasses was examined. Some Yb3+ borate laser glasses with high cross section for stimulated emissions, good stability, good stability against devitrification and lower non-linear refractive index were presented.
