Erbium doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet
Erbium doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Er:Y3Al5O12 or Er:YAG) laser crystal has large advantage in the 2.94 µm wavelength range. Er:YAG has high optical quality, low scattering losses, higher output, stable chemical and mechanical properties and is ideal for hard tissue removal. Er:YAG is a crystal with a wide pump band of 600 – 800 nm. All these properties make Er:YAG crystals excellent for such applications like surgery, dentistry and other medical fields.
