Northrop Grumman Synoptics offer their customers the ability to grow, fabricate, coat and diffusion bond solid-state laser materials.

The YAG bonds are available from LightOptronics .

Optical properties of the YAG bonds:

  • Transmitted wavefront distortions low Peak to Valley
  • Opto-lase grade wavefront distortion achieved in bonded rods
  • Mean stress birefringence decreases > 25% below as-grown contacted crystals following bonding heat treatment.
  • Loss contribution of bonds is negligible

High strength YAG bonds:

  • Higher average strength in flexure tests
  • Bond failures do not originate at the bond interface
  • Increased reliability indicated by higher Weibull modulus values
  • All synoptics bonds pass boiling water thermal shock testing

Materials available for bonding:

  • All garnet materials (Nd:YAG, CTH:YAG, Er:YAG, GGG)
  • Ceramic Nd:YAG
  • Fluoride materials (Nd:YLF)
