Yb:YAG ceramic laser materials, fabricated by vacuum sintering technology, were optically investigated within different laser set-up configurations. The established nanopowder vacuum sintering process shows good potential for mass fabrication of multicomposite ceramic laser materials with different dopant concentrations. 5%, 7%, 10% single dopant and 7%/20% core-cladding multi-composite Yb:YAG materials were fabricated and investigated. The highest measured slope efficiency, for the composite ceramic laser materials was 81%, at 1030 nm emission wavelength, similar to Yb:YAG single crystals.
