Abstract
In this paper we present recent results obtained by our group on diode-pumped bulk erbium-ytterbium lasers. Modeling of the active material is first presented to outline design criteria for the optimization of laser cavities. Different operating regimes and particular properties of these novel laser devices are subsequently analyzed and discussed, including single-frequency operation, frequency tuning, intensity and frequency stabilization, mode-locking and frequency-modulation operation. Due to the high performance in terms of emission characteristics, these lasers are attractive for a large number of applications and, in particular, for optical communications in 1530 - 1570 nm wavelength region.
