Paper Abstract

Phosphate glass compositions with superior properties for operation as active elements in high average power lasers have been developed. Large, high optical quality castings of these new glasses that are free of metallic inclusions have been made by Schott Glass Technologies and by Hoya Optics. The laser requirements, glass development strategy, and the resultant laser and thermo-mechanical properties of the advanced phosphate glasses are analyzed.
