• LiNbO3 Crystals

    LiNbO3 Crystals

    LiNbO3 Crystal has unique electro-optical, piezoelectric, photoelastic and nonlinear optical properties. They are strongly birefringent. They are used in laserfrequency doubling, nonlinear optics, Pockels cells, optical parametric oscillators, Q-switching devices for lasers, other acousto-opticdevices, optical switches for gigahertz frequencies, etc. It is an excellent material for manufacture of optical waveguides, etc.

  • LGS Crystals

    LGS Crystals

    La3Ga5SiO14 crystal (LGS crystal) is an optical nonlinear material with high damage threshold, high electro-optical coefficient and excellent electro-optical performance. LGS crystal belongs to trigonal system structure, smaller thermal expansion coefficient, thermal expansion anisotropy of crystal is weak, the temperature of the high temperature stability is good (better than SiO2), with two independent electro – optical coefficients are as good as those of BBO Crystals.

  • Co:Spinel Crystals

    Co:Spinel Crystals

    Passive Q-switches or saturable absorbers generate high power laser pulses without the use of electro-optic Q-switches, thereby reducing the package size and eliminating a high voltage power supply. Co2+:MgAl2O4 is a relatively new material for passive Q-switching in lasers emitting from 1.2 to 1.6μm, in particular, for eye-safe 1.54μm Er:glass laser, but also works at 1.44μm and 1.34μm laser wavelengths. Spinel is a hard, stable crystal that polishes well.

  • KD*P EO Q-Switch

    KD*P EO Q-Switch

    E-O Q Switch alters the polarization state of light passing through it when an applied voltage induces birefringence changes in an electro-optic crystal such as KD*P. When used in conjunction with polarizers, these cells can function as optical switches, or laser Q-switches.

  • Cr4 +: YAG Crystals

    Cr4 +: YAG Crystals

    Cr4+:YAG  is an ideal material for passive Q-switching of Nd:YAG and other Nd and Yb doped lasers in the wavelength range of 0.8 to 1.2um.It is superior stability and reliability, long service life and high damage threshold.

  • Undoped YAG Crystals

    Undoped YAG Crystals

    Undoped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Y3Al5O12 or YAG) is a new substrate and optical material that can be used for both UV and IR optics. It is particularly useful for high-temperature and high-energy applications. The mechanical and chemical stability of YAG is similar to that of Sapphire.
