Fabrication

The II-VI Optical Systems Specialty Slab Fabrication area produces a wide range of YAG geometries. Some of the routinely produced geometries include micro to large rectangular elements (slabs), complex multifaceted designs, and standard rods with various curves, arcs, angles, brewster, facets and grooves.
II-VI Optical Systems provides a variety of high laser damage threshold coatings on YAG such AR/AR, dichroics, HR/HT, partial reflecting and various custom designs.
