Undoped YAG Crystal

Undoped YAG Crystal is an excellent material for UV-IR optical windows, particularly for high temperature and high energy density applications, The mechanical and chemical stability is comparable to sapphire crystal, but YAG is unique with non-birefringence and available with higher optical homogeneity and surface quality. Up to 3'' YAG boule grown by CZ method, as-cut blocks, windows and mirrors are available from Dayoptics.

Main Features:
1) Transmission in 0.25-5.0 m m, no absorption in 2-3 m m.
2) Extremely hard and durable.
3) High thermal conductivity.
4) High bulk damage threshold.
5) High index of refraction and Non-birefringence.
