Laser Gain Crystals
Nd doped YAG and YVO4 crystals are used in solid state lasers, which are major tools for applications such as welding, cutting, drilling, marking, and engraving. 2.94 u Er doped YAG crystals are used in medical lasers for aesthetic and dental applications. Un-doped YAG crystals, polished to high quality laser finish, are ideal hard materials for optical components such as mirrors and prisms. Nd:YAG material used for the laser wavelengths of 532, 355, 266, and 213 nm. II-VI is a world leader in the supply of high quality YAG and YVO4.
