New laser materials that would yield smaller, more powerful lasers with broad tunability.

The essential components of a laser are an external energy source, a gain or amplifier medium, and a resonator. When a medium, for example an Nd:YAG crystal is arranged so between two mirrors that photons always trigger an “induced emission”, this is called an optical resonator. The supply of external …
