Summary
B.I.Stepanov Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus offers consumers yttrium-alumina-borate laser glasses with intense broadband luminescence under a manufacturing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
Description
B.I.Stepanov Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has developed yttrium-alumina-borate laser glasses, activated by Yb3+ ions, with intense broadband luminescence, intended for use as an active material for continuous-wave fiber lasers and microchip femtosecond lasers with high specific energy output, generating radiation in the near-infrared region of the spectrum.

Yttrium-alumina-borate laser glasses have the following features:
* reduced crystallization capacity, allowing to extract the fiber;
* low photo-bleaching and photo-darkening efficiencies;
* maximal quantum yield of Yb3+ ions luminescence is about 94%;
* low losses to co-operative luminescence of Yb–Yb pairs (two orders lower than for quartz glass under identical pumping
conditions);
* large effective half-width of the amplification band (33 nm, which is 1.5 times higher than the same parameter for ytterbium-alloyed crystals of huntite and yttrium-aluminum garnet);
* high values of thermal conductivity (0,73–0,95 W/m•K) and the threshold of laser-induced destruction of the surface (27 J/cm2);
* resistance to humid atmospheres and staining agents.

Laser radiation (at the wavelength of about 1060 nm with a threshold of about 60 W/mm2) was obtained on a thin plate of such glass in a «deaf» semispherical resonator with led pumping in quasi-continuous mode (differential efficiency of 12.5%) and Q-switching mode.

Spectra of glass generation in quasi-continuous mode (1-3), dependence of generation energy on pumping power:

Advantages and Innovations
In the developed yttrium-alumina-borate laser glasses, the intensity of the cooperative luminescence of Yb3+ ions is 2 orders of magnitude lower than in the glasses closest in technical essence (Republic of Belarus/Russian Federation), which provides an advantage as an active element of near-infrared lasers operating in a single-pulse mode, and It is also promising for use under conditions of high population of the metastable state of the activator.
