Abstract
The ability to vary glass properties by adjusting composition continues to make glass a leading material for application as both active and passive elements, in bulk as well as in guided-wave laser systems. We consider here how glass is engineered for specific intracavity and extracavity laser applications. Mention also is made of process and manufacturing techniques which result in glasses with improved or special properties critical for applications involving laser systems.
