Interest in Yb3+-doped materials has been increasing with advances of high-performance in GaAs laser diode which are ideally suited for pumping the Yb3+ ion between 905 and 980 nm [1]. Yb3+ is indeed the most promising ion that can be used in a non-Nd3+ laser in the near-IR.

The purpose of this work is to present and discuss spectroscopic properties of Yb3+ in K2LaX5 : (X= Cl, Br, I) hosts grown by the Bridgman method according to the procedure described in [2, 3]. The structural characterization was made for the obtained crystals.

Spectroscopic measurements useful for laser applications, high resolution absorption, emission spectra as well as decay time at 293 K, 77 K and 4 K were investigated. The interpretation of Stark levels were done by using Raman and IR absorption spectra to select electronic and vibronic lines. Upconversion process by non-radiative energy transfer to RE unexpected impurity ions as well as Yb3+ pairing and clustering are expected in these hosts.
