SCHOTT has developed eye-safe laser glasses for laser range finder and medical/ biophotonics applications. The
development described herein covers various combinations of key ions, Er, Yb, and Cr, with and without Ce, at
controlled ratios and their perspective reduction - oxidation (REDOX) states to improve glass lasing, thermal lensing,
and thermo-mechanical stability for field-based applications under high repetition rate operation. This report covers glass
property characterizations and selective modeling results using statistically designed compositions.
