Transparent glass ceramics have a wide traditional spectrum of applications. Possibility to dope these materials with rare-earth and transition-metal ions provides their perspectives as lasing media. Near-zero thermal expansion coefficient, high thermal stability and thermal conductivity together with flexibility of synthesis procedure make glass ceramics as a material of choice in comparison with crystalline media. Our paper presents stimulated emission properties of zinc- and magnesium- aluminosilicate glass ceramics doped with different concentrations of cobalt ions.
