Cr4+:YAG crystals Chromium Doped Yttrium AIuminum Garnet

Cr4+:YAG (Y3Al5O12) crystal is ideal for passive Q-switch operation of Nd:YAG and other Nd3+ or Yb3+ doped laser crystals in the wavelength range of 900 nm to 1200 nm. Passive Q-switches or saturable absorbers provide high power laser pulses without electro-optic Q-switches, thereby reducing the package size and eliminating a high voltage power supply. A remarkable feature of Cr4+:YAG is the high damage threshold of >10 J/cm2@1064 nm, 10 ns. Its absorption band extends from 900 nm to 1200 nm and peaks around 1060 nm with a very large absorption cross-section.

Why Choose HGO ?

HG OPTRONICS.,INC. supplies very high quality of Cr4+:YAG passive Q-switch crystals Chromium Doped Yttrium AIuminum Garnet. The use of high quality starting materials for crystal growth, boule interferometry, and precise measurement of initial transmission and absorption using transmission spectroscopy and ZYGO measurements, assures that each crystal will comply with customer’s specification and perform well in laser system.

Tolerance of initial transmission can be well controlled in as high precision as 0.5% which could be very essential to some delicate laser systems.

Besides, based on HGO’s advanced bonding technology, high quality of diffusion bonding between Nd3+, Yb3+ or other ions doped YAG host laser crystals and CrYAG are available from stock or for customization.

What is more,HGO have mature solutions for different laser parameters especially in microchips solution and our engineer are very glad to discuss and provide solutions for customers.

Co2+:MgAl2O4  Cospinel Q-switch
Co2+:MgAl2O4 Cobalt-doped magnesium aluminate spinel

Co2+:MgAl2O4 Cospinel is a relatively new material for passive Q-switching in lasers emitting from 1.2 to 1.6 μm, in particular, for eye-safe 1.54 μm Er:glass laser, but also works at 1.44 μm and 1.34 μm wavelengths. Spinel is a hard, stable crystal that polishes well. Cobalt substitutes readily for magnesium in the Spinel host without the need for additional charge compensation ions. High absorption cross section (3.5×10-19 cm2) permits Q-switching of Er:glass laser without intracavity focusing both with flash-lamp and diode-laser pumping. Negligible excited-state absorption results in high contrast of Q-switch, i.e. the ratio of initial (small signal) to saturated absorption is higher than 10.

N-BK7 and Fused Silica Wedge Prisms

Wedge prism is an optical element with plane-inclined surfaces, usually the faces are inclined toward one another at a very small angles.  It diverts light toward its thicker portion.  Wedge prisms can be used as isolating components. Wedges may also be used to produce a small deviation which doesnt allow return to source.

Absorptive Neutral Density (ND) Filters
Optical glass neutral density filters

A Neutral Density filter allows a photographer to control the exposure in an image very easily. The filter stops light reaching the camera sensor, therefore allowing us to leave the camera with a higher aperture for a longer amount of time. HG OPTRONICS neutral-density filter is a filter that reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths, or colors, of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition.
