Nd:YVO4

Yttrium Vanadate has been growing in popularity because of its high gain, low threshold, and high absorption coefficients at pumping wavelengths, which result from the excellent fit of the neodymium dopant in the crystal lattice. These advantages make Nd:YVO4 is a better choice than Nd:YAG for low-power devices such as hand-held pointers, and other compact lasers. With advanced technology on growing and manufacturing high optical quality Nd:YVO4 crystal of Nd dopant concentration:0.27~3atm%+/-0.1%.
