Excellent laser material for DPSS laser

    NdYAG Crystal

    Nd:YAG has been and continues to be the most mature and most widely used crystals for lasers, no matter solid state or lamp pumped, CW or pulsed.It possesses a combination of properties uniquely favorable for laser operations. We have developed the state-of-the-art crystal growing technology to enable the availability of large, high quality crystal

NdYAG with hot application in slab lasers.

    Slab lasers represent one class of high-power solid-state bulk lasers, where the gain medium (laser crystal) has the form of a slab. Typically, a laser slab is thin in one dimension, compared with the larger extent in the other two directions. However, other lasers without a large aspect ratio of the gain medium are sometimes also called slab lasers, simply because their gain medium has a rectangular rather than a circular cross-section. Such lasers are actually often not very different from rod lasers, also in terms of power scaling Tel: +86-591-83676250 Fax: +86-591-83652571
