Most of the challenges in laser technology can be overcome by using yttrium-aluminum perovskite (YAlO3, YAP). These crystals are characterized by more advantages than typical Y3Al5O12 (YAG) crystals. However, the creation of microlasers with these materials is just under development. The aim of the work was to theoretically design the input and output cavity mirrors for microlasers on the base of YAlO3:Nd or YAlO3:Tm single crystals, and to investigate those resonators obtained according to the theoretical design using electron beam evaporation method.
