Nd:YAG crystal (Neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet laser crystal, Nd:Y3Al5O12) is the most widely used solid state laser crystal. Nd:YAG laser crystal is a highly sought-after material in various applications due to its specific absorption and emission properties. Its absorption bandwidth ranges from 730 to 760 nm and 790 to 820 nm.
Typically, Nd:YAG lasers, commonly used in medical procedures like laser eye surgery, as well as cutting, welding, materials processing, communications, radar, military applications, and scientific research, emit laser beams with a wavelength of 1064nm. Suitable for laser working mode:CW, pulsed, Q-switched,mode locking, frequency doubling and high-average power lasers.
Additionally, they find utility in diverse fields such as photodynamic medical treatment, environmental monitoring, laser remote sensing, lidar, spectroscopy, and laser display when combined with V:YAG bonding crystal for a 1319 nm wavelength.
