Yb:YAG Thin Disks
Our standard material is Yb:YAG with 7% of doping concentration (5% might be available upon request). The surface is wegded in order to supress pre-pulses in pulsed operation. Outer crystal edges are beveled to avoid ASE.
Other materials and dimensions upon request.
Mounting of thin laser crystals, thereby ensuring effective and homogenous cooling, is the key technology for disk lasers. For various laboratory applications as well as for the series production of our OEM customers, we offer disk laser crystals mounted on heatsinks, that are tested at typical operation conditions.
We offer two standard sizes of the laser disk: 12 mm and 20 mm. Two disk thicknesses are available: 0.13 mm and 0.22 mm. Yb:YAG with a doping concentration of 7 at.% Yb3+ is employed. Please refer to the corresponding products TD12-7, TD20-7, etc. The disk is wedged in order to supress pre-pulses in pulsed operation. Outer crystal edges are bevelled to avoid ASE.
Surface quality conforms to ISO 10110-7 imperfection of the final surface of 5/4x0.04.
Crystal diameter 12 mm, usable free aperture 8 mm
Crystal diameter 20 mm, usable free aperture 14 mm
