yttrium aluminium garnet laser (YAG)

A YAG (Yttrium Aluminium Garnet) laser is a solid-state laser whose basic elements are doped

with

rare earths, usually neodymium, but also ytterbium, erbium

or thulium.Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (YAG) is a synthetic crystal used for lasers

. Yttrium ions in YAG lasers can be replaced with rare earth ions without affecting the lattice structure. YAG forms the basic structure for power lasers that emit laser light at 1,064 nm. Other emission wavelengths include 946 nm, 1,123 nm and 1,319 nm. YAG lasersare

suitable for large-scale production and use in discrete optical components. However, they can also be monolithically constructed, for example as microchip lasers.
