Laser crystals are used as gain media for solid-state lasers. Typically, they consist of a single crystal doped with ions of rare earth metals where these ions are responsible for the lasing process. A good laser crystal has a high optical homogeneity, high surface quality (approx. λ/8) and the right doping concentration depending on the application.
There are different types of laser crystals depending on the requirements: They usually are slabs, cylinders or thin disks. Also, we offer bonded crystals .
Impex offers different types of laser crystals:
YVO4laser crystals: Nd:YVO4
LuAG laser crystals: Cr:LuAG
