    Default ISEF

    I am working on a Intel Science Fair project, my topic, not surprisingly is Lasers and I am working on Violet LED pumping on Chromium doped laser mediums. I really am in need of CHT: YAG for comparison to Alexandrite. I need something that can have crystals 2x2x3mm cut out of it so that could be rods or boules. Any help in finding this material would be a great help. I have a scientist at Continuum helping me with the cutting and polishing of the crystals but I really need the material. Please, if you have any CHT YAG or Alexandrite, let me know and I may end up buying it from you!

    Also, any input on the project would be appreciated!

    Thanks a lot!

    I have a cht:yag head in a nice roomy resonator, you have a jdsu blue. lets talk. My CHT is out of a sunrise medical system and is flashlamp lamp pumped. Was a 30 hz rep rate system, looks like a older flashlamp pumped kigre (www.kigre.com) block.

    Glasses certainly, crystals, maybe, but not often. They probably try to grow only what they need to stock. But you only need a sliver compared to their customers.

    The above post was an offer for the Alexandrite. I have stock on hand.Also have a very small piece of the natural material. Not for sale. The synthetic I will part with some of it. Let me know and I can slice off a piece or facet it to the size and polish the ends for you. Just be sure to tell me the axis arrangement you need.
