Paper Abstract

The laser medium made of a single crystal is generally limited in several factors to fabricate large size crystals and to dope optically active elements heavily. For the improvement of these factors, it is proposed to use ceramics for the laser. We have succeeded to fabricate highly transparent ceramics ruby by using CIP and vacuum sintering techniques. The fluorescence spectrum of Cr ions in the ceramics ruby corresponded to that of a single crystal.
