Paper Abstract

In this paper, recent progress made towards the development of transparent Nd doped ceramic yttria is presented. Using 99.99% pure raw materials and with improved material processing techniques, Nd doped ceramic yttria test samples greater than 99% transmission at 2000nm wavelength and bandedge <250nm have been produced. The test samples were >1" x 1" x 10mm in dimensions. Nd ions were successfully incorporated into undoped ceramic yttria material through diffusion process.
