Neodymium doped Yttrium Aluminum Perovskite

Material
Nd:YAP

 

Neodymium doped Yttrium Aluminum Perovskite (Nd:YAP or YAlO3:Nd3+) is a well-known laser crystal for high output power resonators and is especially suitable for lasers with electro-optic cells or harmonic generators for its polarized output. The 1340nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAP is more advantageous for application in laser medicine than 1319nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAG. The 1340nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAP has higher absorption in water and bodily fluids in comparison with the 1319nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAG. Taking into account the polarized output beam, Nd:YAP can be advantageously utilized in lasers with electro optic cells or harmonic generators.
