Compounds containing Yb3+ ions have potential application as laser devices and they have some advantages over the Nd3+ ion as laser emitting center. There is no cross-relaxation process thus no concentration quenching. In addition, the intense and broad Yb3+ absorption bands are well suited for IR laser diode pumping.
