In this paper, we investigate Yb doped Y2O3 (or Y3Al6O12) nanoparticles in a silica rich matrix, as an alternative to the Yb in a 'standard', such as aluminium or phosphorous co-doped, silica host for use in high power fiber lasers. Y2O3 is a good host for RE incorporation, and efficient Yb:Y2O3 ceramic lasers have been reported. It is expected that Y2O3 nanoparticles within a silica host will improve the RE solubility in fibers.
