Paper Abstract

Highly transparent Nd- or (Nd,Yb)-doped Sc203 ceramics are produced by the method of solid-state mixing of oxides. High-resolution spectroscopy indicates the spectroscopic and structural properties of the doping ions in these ceramics are similar with those of single crystals, although the maximum doping could be much higher. Very efficient Nd-to-Yb energy transfer is observed, which can be used for sensitisation of Yb laser emission.
