Cr4+YAG | Q-Switch Crystal is an excellent crystal for passively Q-switching YAG(Nd), YAG(Yb), YVO4(Nd) and lasers at wavelengths from 0.8 to 1.2µm. It can also be used as an active media for CW, pulsed, or self mode-locked tunable NIR solid-state lasers with the tunability range of 1340-1580nm. Because of its chemical stability, durability, UV resistance, good thermal conductivity, and ease of operation, it will replace traditional materials, such as LiF, organic dye and color centers.
- High damage threshold
- Lower cost OEM components
- Higher reliability and longer lifetime providing high-power laser pulses without electro-optic Q-switches
- Passively Q-switching diode-pumped or lamp-pumped passive Q-switching materials
