Abstract : Laser amplifiers are seeking for high power, efficiency and short pulse durations. The research laboratories in this field have then focused their investigations towards new laser materials that can be efficiently diode-pumped, that can sustain the high-power pumping and that have broad emission bandwidth to achieved ultra-short pulse amplification. This is why, for more than ten years now, new Yb-doped materials are strongly investigated. In the actual state of the art, they represent the more promising and successful materials for this kind of applications. In the paper we will do a short review of the last and more impacting discoveries and demonstrations in this field for the last few years.
