Powerful laser equipment: Nd:YLF Laser or Nd:YAG Laser

Nd:YLF laser active elements are made of yttrium lithium fluoride (YLiF4) crystal. YLF stands for Yttrium Lithium Fluoride. Usually neodymium-doped YLF crystal is used for YLF laser equipment; however, it can also be doped with rare earth elements, such as ytterbium (Yb), erbium (Er), thulium (Tm), holmium (Ho) or praseodymium (Pr). Yttrium ions in YLF...


Nd:YAG is an Optimal Cost-Efficient Laser for Scientific Laser Systems

YAG stands for yttrium aluminum garnet, which is a synthetic crystal. Nd:YAG is an artificial cubic garnet crystal. YAG crystals were created shortly after ruby laser discovery. They have high gain and other unique properties which make them universal for a lot of different applications. YAG crystals increase the stability of the source, its efficiency...
