Nd:YVO4 Laser Crystal

Nd:YVO4 - Neodymium Doped Yttrium Orthovanadate is one of most efficient laser crystal for diode-pumped solid-state lasers. Compared with Nd:YAG, Nd:YVO4 lasers crystal posses the advantages of lower dependency on pump wavelength and temperature control of a diode laser, wide absorption band, higher slope efficiency, lower lasing threshold, linearly polarized emission and single-mode output. For the applications in which compact design and the single frequency output are desired, Nd:YVO4 shows its particular advantages over other commonly used laser crystals.

Nd:YVO4 Crystal

The Nd:YVO4 diode-pumped compact laser and its frequency-doubled green, red or blue laser light have been used in machining, material processing, spectroscopy, wafer inspection, light show, medical diagnostics, laser printing.

Features of Nd:YVO4 Laser crystal

- Large stimulated emission cross-section
- High absorption coefficient, wide absorption bandwidth
- High laser induced damage threshold
- Good physical, optical and mechanical properties.
