High-power laser glass---Nd:glass(N21 and N31)

Nd doped phosphate glass have been widely used in high average power laser solid state lasers,laser material processing, range finder and other industrial and scientific applications。

Lasertec's mainly offers two types of Nd 3+ doped phosphate glasses-N21and N31. Lasertec's Nd 3+ phosphate glasses are guaranteed in optical qualities such as homogeneity, striation, stress birefringence, Pt inclusions etc. The different neodymium doping phosphate glasses are ready for your quest. We have stocked 0.7%, 3.0%, and 4.0% doped N31 and N21. N21- an Nd 3+ : phosphate glass is specially developed for the LF1 # and LF2 # Laser Facility. It consist of two high power laser beams at 1.054um, each has an output aperture of 200mm with output power of 10 12 W. Its operation represents a significant achievement of laser technology in China. This kind of glass exhibits the moderate cross section for stimulated emission and the excellent chemical durability. N31-a new Nd 3+ : phosphate glass is specially developed for the LF12 # Laser Facility-at present the most powerful laser facility in China(also called “Shengguang” in SIOM of China)It exhibits the nearly same qualification with HOYA LHG8. glass
