OP0482 Ytterbium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Yb:YAG) Maximize

OP0482 Ytterbium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Yb:YAG)

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 and other potential applications.
