V3+:YAG Passive Q-switch Crystals

Altechna 3-VYAG V3+:YAG Passive Q-switch Crystals

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Altechna


Description :

V3+:YAG is a relatively new material for saturable absorber passive Q-switching in lasers emitting from 1.06 to 1.44 ┬Ám, in particular, for 1.3 um Nd-lasers. Extremely high ground state absorption (GSA) cross section of 7x10-18 cm2 near 1.3 m and negligible excited state absorption (ESA) permits Q-switching of 1.3 and 1.44 m Nd-lasers without intracavity focusing both with flash-lamp and diode-laser pumping.
