Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) can offer holmium-doped yttrium lithium fluoride and other crystals for lasers.Related products: Nd:YLF, Ho:Cr:Tm:YAG, Er:YAG, Yb:YAG, Nd:YAG, etc.
Nd:YVO4 is the most promising commercially available laser host material because of its high laser-induced damage threshold and good mechanical properties. It can produce powerful IR (Infrared Radiation), green and blue light by employing different set-ups. It has many attractive features: low lasing threshold, high slope efficiency and large stimulated...
Nd:KGd(WO4)2 (Neodymium-doped Potassium-Gadolinium Tungstate crystal) or Nd:KGW is one of the most promising laser materials. Its efficiency is 3-5 times higher than that of Nd:YAG lasers. Nd:KGW exhibits a lower laser oscillations threshold and a higher emission section. It can be widely used in medical, military and meteorology fields.
Diffusion bonded crystals consist of a laser crystal attached to slabs of undoped materials. This high-temperature bonding process allows for minimally reflective interfaces. The slabs of undoped materials improve beam quality and especially reduce the thermal lensing effect with respect to unbonded crystals.
Yb:YAG is an excellent laser-active material and more suitable for diode-pumping than the commonly used Nd-doped crystals. Compared with the traditional Nd:YAG crystal , Yb:YAG crystal has a much bigger absorption bandwidth to reduce thermal management of diode lasers. Yb:YAG crystal is expected to replace Nd:YAG crystal for high power diode-pumped lasers...
