Where to Buy Laser Crystals

A wide range of laser crystals with different laser-active dopants, doping concentrations and geometrical dimensions are available. Most of them are monocrystalline materials of high optical quality. Particularly common types are Nd:YAG, Nd:YVO4, Yb:YAG, Er:YAG, Tm:YAG, Ho:YAG and Ti:sapphire.

Check List for Laser Crystals

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • Are you sure that you are using the best suited laser crystal material for your application? If not, you may want to consult an expert.
  • Also, before ordering crystals, one should be sure that one is using a proper laser design.
  • Check the required dimensions.
  • Check the doping concentration. Particularly for quasi-three level gain media, this is quite important. Caution: manufacturers can not always guarantee a high accuracy of the doping concentration.
  • Will the crystal quality be sufficiently high? Possible aspects of relevance: homogeneous refractive index, no clustering of the dopant, impurities, parasitic absorption. (Some materials such as Cr4+:YAG are more critical than e.g. Nd:3+:YAG.)
  • Is the surface quality high enough? For example scratch/dig 10–5 and λ/20 for demanding applications?
  • For non-isotropic materials (e.g., Nd3+:YVO4): what is the proper crystal orientation? How can it be recognized if it is not obvious from the geometry?
  • Do you need anti-reflection coatings on the end faces?
  • For side-pumped lasers: are the sides properly processed (e.g. polished)?

In case that you need additional advice, consultancy from RP Photonics may be the solution.
