Titanium doped Sapphire (Ti:Sapphire) is the most widely used laser crystal for widely tunable and ultrashort pulsed lasers with high gain and power outputs. CASTECH possesses the advanced growth method of Temperature Gradient Technique (TGT), and it supplies large-sized (Dia.30x30mm) Ti:Sapphire crystal in high quality free of light scatter, with the dislocation density less than 102cm-2. The TGT grown sapphire crystal is characterized by the (0001) oriented growth, high doping level (a490 = 4.0cm-1), high gain and laser damage threshold.
