Diffusion Bonded Crystals with High Damage Threshold

Diffusion bonded crystals consist of one laser crystal and one or two undoped material. They are combined by optical contact method and further bonded under high temperature. Diffusion Bonded Crystal helps to decrease thermal lens effect considerably of laser crystals, provides integral components to make compact lasers. HGO are able to supply various standard assembly and special customized bonding crystals.These diffusion bonded composite crystals have different wedge structures, Brewster angles, etc. It is used to effectively reduce the thermal effect of solid-state high-power lasers.

Diffusion Bonded Crystals largely reduce thermal lens effect of laser crystals, provides integral components to make compact lasers.

Diffusion bonding process:

1) Perfect optical contact between the crystals to be bonded;

2)Heating up of the two parts very slowly , to a very high temperature, probably 2/3 of the melt temperature or more, and exerting pressure to press the two parts together;

3) Keeping the bonded crystals for certain period of time at this high temperature, so that diffusion takes place;

4)Slowly cooling the crystals (24 hours) down to room temperature.

LiF crystal  windows
LiF crystal lithium fluoride

HGO grows LiF crystals in house using Czochralski technology. LiF crystal or lithium fluoride crystal is an optical material with outstanding transmittance in VUV region. It is also used for windows, prisms, and lenses in the visible and infrared in 0.104µm-7µm. LiF single crystal is sensitive to thermal shock and would be attacked by atmospheric moisture at 400°C. When working at a high temperature of 600°C, the LiF crystal softens and is slightly plastic, so it can be bent into radius plates. In addition irradiation produces color centers. Hence, users should take measures to protect LiF crystals from moisture and high energy radiation damages. What is more LiF can be cleaved along (100) plane and less commonly (110) plane. The optical characteristics are good and yet the structure is not perfect and cleavage is difficult.

Nd:YLF Crystal Neodymium-doped yttrium lithium fluoride

HGO grows Nd:YLF laser crystals using Czochralski technology. Nd3+:YLF crystal is characterized by its long lifetime of 4F3/2 neodymium energy level. Compared to Nd:YAG, the lower thermal conductivity and a weak negative dn/dT lead to lower thermal distortions and allow to achieve a better output beam quality. Another distinctive feature is the high UV transparency, which is favorable for pumping with xenon flash lamps.

TmYLF laser crystal
Tm:YLF crystal Thulium-doped Yttrium Lithium Fluoride

HGO grows Tm:YLF laser crystals using Czochralski technology. Tm:YLF is an important middle infrared laser crystal. Because Tm:YLF is negative uniaxial crystal, whose thermal refractive index coefficient is negative, some thermal distortion may be counteracted and high-quality light can be output. Conveniently pumped at 792nm, 1.9μm linearly polarized beam is output in a axis, and non-linearly polarized beam is output in c axis. The YLF crystals has low non-linear refraction index value and thermo optical constants, which makes these crystals applicable in research, development, education, production, photonics, optic, laser technology and telecommunications. Besides, Tm3+:YLF lasers are ideal pump sources for 2.1 μm Ho3+:YAG lasers. This is due to a good overlap of Tm3+:YLF emission and Ho3+:YAG absorption spectra and the capacity of producing linearly polarized output. What is more, the refractive index of Tm3+:YLF decreases with temperature, leading to a negative thermal lens that is partly compensated by a positive lens effect due to end face bulging.

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.

Cr4+:YAG passive q-switch
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.

α-BBO (α-BaB2O4) birefringent crystals
a-BBO Crystal alpha -Barium Borate

α-BBO (α-BaB2O4) is a negative uniaxial crystal which has large birefringence over a broad transparent range of 190nm to 3500nm. α-BBO is an excellent crystal especially in UV and high power applications. The physical, chemical, thermal, and optical properties of alpha-BBO crystal are similar to those of Beta-BBO. However, there is no second order nonlinear effect in alpha-BBO crystal due to the centrosymmetry in its crystal structure and thus it has no use for second order nonlinear optical processes. Instead, alpha-BBO is widely used for fabrication of polarizers, polarizing beam displacers, phase retarders, birefringent plates, and time delay compensators especially those for UV and high power lasers.
