Tm:YLF
Product Information :

 

Tm:YLF is the important middle infrared laser crystal. Because Tm:YLF is negative uniaxial crystal, whose thermal refractive index coefficient is negative, some thermal distortion may be counteracted and high-quality light can be output. Conveniently pumped at 792nm, 1.9μm linearly polarized beam is output in a axis, and non-linearly polarized beam is output in c axis.

Advantages of Tm:YLF Crystals

Linearly polarized output beam

Little heat effect while laser

Effective cross relaxing of Tm ions

Relatively high efficiency with LD pumping
