Nd:YAP
Product Information :

 

Nd:YAP is a well-known laser crystal for high output power resonators, and especially suitable for lasers with electro-optic cells or harmonic generators for its polarized output. The 1340nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAP is more advantageous for application in laser medicine than 1319nm emission wavelength of Nd:YAG.

Advantages of Nd:YAP Crystals

Comparable threshold and slope efficiency at 1079nm to Nd:YAG at 1064nm

Higher efficiency at 1340nm compared to Nd:YAG at 1319nm

Linearly polarized output beam

Higher absorption in water and body fluid of 1340nm compared to 1319nm
