Paper Abstract

The emergence of new laser crystals has allowed crucial progress in the ultrashort-pulsed laser technology. Recently extensive researches on new Yb3+ doped crystals permit the development of all-solid-state femtosecond lasers. In the Yb3+ solid state lasers, thermo-mechanical properties plays a key role. Thermo-mechanical parameters are gathered and analyzed in the framework of simple theoretical models. Consequently, structural properties relationships could be expressed. The review of the state of the art on the Yb doped laser material for high power and ultrafast pulses generation are presented.
