Abstract
Optical quality polycrystalline yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) materials suitable for laser gain application have been under development at Raytheon Advanced Materials Laboratory since late 2003. Significant progress has been achieved in the optical quality improvement, scale-up, Yb and Nd dopant incorporation, and various characterizations. This communication discusses Raytheon's ongoing developments in laser quality ceramic YAG fabrication and its characteristics in comparison to the current state of the art ceramic YAG made by Konoshima Chemical in Japan.
