Nd: YAG


Nd:YAG is the earliest and most famous laser host crystal. Since it combines great advantages in many basic properties, Nd:YAG is the ubiquitous presence for near-infrared solid-state lasers and their frequency-doubler, tripler, and higher order multiplier.


Advantages:


• High gain, High efficiency, Low threshold, Low loss at 1.06 µm

• Good thermal conductivity and thermal shock characteristics

• Mechanical strength, High optical quality

• Various modes of operation (CW, pulsed, Q-switched, mode locked)
