YAG(Yb) | Laser Crystal is one of the most promising laser-active materials and is more suitable for diode-pumping than the traditional Nd-doped systems. It can be pumped at 0.94μm laser output and has advantages of high optical quality, high slope efficiency, and low fractional heating broad absorption bands. Compared with the commonly used YAG(Nd) crystal, YAG(Yb) crystal has a much larger absorption bandwidth to reduce thermal management requirements for diode lasers, a longer upper-state lifetime, and three to four times lower thermal loading per unit pump power.
- High-power diode pumped lasers
- High efficiency high average power LD pumped lasers
