A new Yb:YAG solid-state laser has been developed for generating efficient and high-power CW and ultrashort pulse output at 1.03 Ám. This laser will be a future alternative of high-power Nd:YAG lasers and ultrashort Ti:sapphire lasers. Basic and practical performance of this laser is introduced together with a cooperative research and development system among university, industry and government in Japan. Some other recent applications of solid-state lasers in the laboratory will also be introduced briefly in the field of industry and remote sensing of the environment.
