PRODUCT:  Co2+ MgAlO4


Introduction:
Co2+:MgAl2O4 is a relatively new material for passive Q-switching in lasers emitting from 1.2~1.6 um, in particular, for eye-safe 1.54 um Er:glass laser, also works at 1.44 um and 1.34 um wavelength。High absorption cross section of 3.5 x 10-19 cm2 permits Q-switching of Er:glass laser without intracavity focusing both with flash-lamp and diode-laser pumping. Negligible excited-state absorption results in high contrast of Q-switch, i.e, the ratio of initial & saturated absorption signal is higher than 10, the excellent optical, mechanical and thermal properties of the crystal gives an opportunity to design compact and reliable laser sources with this passive Q-switch。


Advantages:
High optical quality
With uniform Co distribution
High absorption cross section
Negligible excited-state absorption


Applications:
Passively Q-switch materials for solid state laser (1540nm eye safe lasers)
