II-VI Optical Systems utilizes the proven Czochrolski technique for its YAG growth. The Foundry produces various diameter boules and dopant concentrations up to 1.4% for Nd:YAG.
The II-VI Optical Systems Specialy 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 as AR/AR, dichroics, HR/HT, partial reflecting and various custom designs.
