Excellent optical, mechanical and thermal properties of Co2+:MgAl2O4 (Co:Spinel), Cr4+:YAG, V3+:YAG give an opportunity to design compact and reliable laser sources. Fe:ZnSe, Cr:ZnSe, Co:ZnS solid-state saturable absorbers are also available upon request.
Cr:YAG is one of the best passive Q-switching crystal for high power lasers emitting at ~1 micron wavelength.
from 4 - 5 days
Co:Spinel is used for passive Q-switching in lasers emitting from 1.2 to 1.6 micron wavelengths.
