Nd3+ : YAG laser
Keywords:Ytrium, YAG laser, Krypton
This article is about the Nd3+ : YAG laser system.
This is one of the popular four level laser systems where the trivalent neodynium Nd3+ ion is doped in Ytrium-Aluminium-Garnet(Y3Al5O12), an optically isotropic crystal, commonly known as YAG. The active centres are the Nd3+ ions and except housing the Nd3+ ions The crystal atoms have no for the role in the lasing action.
