Undoped YAG crystals and substrates

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Undoped YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) is a crystal and window material for both IR and UV optics.  Undoped YAG is highly transmissive in the IR region where glasses tend to absorb.  YAG is much easier to polish to optical specifications but retains the chemical robustness near that of Sapphire.  YAG is a non-birefringent material. 

  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates are useful for high-temperature and high-energy applications.
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates have the mechanical and chemical stability of YAG is similar to that of Sapphire
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates is of high quality and optical homogeneity
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates come in several sizes.
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates come in several orientations.
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates pricing is highly competitive
  • Our undoped YAG crystals and substrates is the best value for your budget

A couple of examples where undoped YAG crystals and substrates were used in research leading to outstanding research results are:

Researchers at Washington State University studied the visible and near infrared luminescence in undoped YAG substrates.  Because this material is often used as host materials for transition and rare earth elements for laser, optoelectronic and scintillation applications.  YAG is the most widely used solid state laser host materials and the shows potential as a scintillation material.

In another example where undoped YAG and doped YAG crystals was studied, the researchers at Washington State University studied the optical properties of the material by optical absorption and photoluminescence.  To study the effects of the growth technique, dopant, and UV irradiation on these materials and their effects on the optical properties.
