We report on the temperature dependent spectroscopic properties of Yb3+ and Er3+ co-doped glass gain media in the eye-safe spectral region. Measurements suggest that judicious selection of the operating wavelength can lead to a laser output with minimal dependence on the temperature of the gain medium.
