The general objective of this project is to develop new bifunctional laser and NLO crystals for obtaining of efficient laser sources in the NIR (~1 μm) and VIS (~0.5 μm) ranges, based on direct laser emission and SFD processes, respectively. The project proposal is highly complex and multidisciplinary connecting many fields of physics, chemistry, crystal growth and machining, optical spectroscopy, laser experiments, as well as applicative outcomes.

The project is structured in two specific objectives:
O1
Development of highly efficient Nd:LYSB crystals for solid-state lasers in the 1 μm spectral range;
O2
Development of high-efficiency Nd:LYSB SFD crystals in the green (~0.5 μm) spectral range.

1. STAGE I. January - December 2021
 Development of highly efficient Nd:LYSB crystals for solid-state laser sourcs in the 1 μm spectral range. PARTIAL 
2. STAGE II. January - December 2022
 Development of highly efficient Nd:LYSB crystals for solid-state laser sourcs in the 1 μm spectral range. FINAL 
3. STAGE III. January - December 2023
 Development of high-efficiency Nd:LYSB SFD crystals in the green spectral range (~0.5 μm).
