Single crystals of potassium-yttrium tungstate (KYW:Yb) activated with ytterbium ions, α-KY(WO4)2–Yb3+, are used for ultrashort pulse laser generation (50–200 femtoseconds). KYW:Yb single crystals are unique laser material allowing to use laser diodes most effectively (efficiency coefficient > 50%) for pumping.
