Riassunto:  Ytterbium doped scandium oxide (Yb:Sc2O3) transparent ceramics were fabricated by a co-precipitation and vacuum sintering method. The characteristics of the precursor and the calcined powders were investigated by BET, XRD, and SEM. Ultra-fine and low agglomerated 5at%Yb:Sc2O3 powders with the average particle size about 65.4 nm were obtained after calcined at 1100 degrees C for 5 h. Using the synthesized powders as starting materials, 5at%Yb:Sc2O3 transparent ceramics with the in-line transmittance of 71.1% at 1100 nm and average grain size of 145 pm were fabricated by vacuum sintering at 1825 degrees C for 10 h. Quasi-CW laser oscillation of Yb:Sc2O3 ceramics was obtained at 1040.6 nm. A maximum output power as high as 2.44 W with a corresponding slope of 35% was achieved. Finally, the tunability of the ceramic was explored measuring a tuning range up to 55 nm.
