Paper Abstract

We have performed a laser evaluation of the Yb3+-doped Y2O3 ceramic laser material. The Q-CW output power in excess of 30 W was obtained with the slope efficiency of 47.3%. This output power is, to the best of our knowledge, the highest reported so far for diode-pumped Yb3+-doped Y2O3 laser.
