Why Choose HGO ?

HG OPTRONICS.,INC. has the ability to supply high quality MgF2 Magnesium Fluoride Crystal in mass production quantity. Material from HGO features with high transmittance in VUV(>70%) and UV wavelength ranges. Standard size for VUV windows are Dia.8 and Dia.6 with 1mm thickness.

HGO offer both a-cut (or [100] cut) MgF2 windows for the maximum birefringence and c-cut (or cut along the optical axis) with the minimum birefringence. Random-cut (cut along a random axis) MgF2 windows are also available. The thickness can be made as thin as 0.1mm. In addition, we can also produce other types of window crystals like YAG crystals, BaF2,LiF Crystals, etc.

HGO has a mass-production line for MgF2 crystals and have wide experiences and strong ability to supply such crystals with large quantity and in very short delivery time.

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.

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.
