Materials processing tricks enable engineers to create new laser material

By doping alumina crystals with neodymium ions, engineers have developed a new laser material that is capable of emitting ultra-short, high-power pulses -- a combination that could potentially yield smaller, more powerful lasers with superior thermal shock resistance, broad tunability and high-duty cycles.
