Abstract

Growth of optical-quality crystals with a borate anionic group and small-diameter cations is challenging. By compensating for the volatilization of boracic acid, an optical-quality Yb3+:ScBO3 laser crystal suitable for laser applications has been grown by the Czochralski method. The thermal and spectral properties of Yb3+:ScBO3 were experimentally and theoretically studied, including the thermal expansion, thermal diffusivity, specific heat, thermal conductivity, and the absorption and low-temperature emission spectra. The results indicate that this crystal exhibits a thermal conductivity that increases with temperature, and large energy storage properties that indicate promise for utilization in moderate power lasers. A continuous-wave Yb3+:ScBO3 crystal laser has, to the best of our knowledge, been demonstrated for the first time, with a maximum output power of 106 mW. All the results are indicative of a novel promising laser medium for applications in low and even moderate power lasers.
