CY0478 Neodimium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Nd:YAG)
|Surface Quality||10/5 Scratch / Digper MIL-O-1380A|
|Perpendicularity||< 5 arc minutes|
Nd: YAG (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) is the earliest and most famous laser crystal for solid-state laser. Nd: YAG has many typical features: high gain, low threshold, and high efficiency. The fluorescence lifetime of Nd: YAG is twice that of Nd: YVO4 and its thermal conductivity is also better. It can be used to provide a green laser for SHG at 1064nm.
