TGG

TGG is an excellent magneto-optical crystal material, which is used in all kinds of Faraday isolators and rotators. The applicable wavelength is 400nm-1100nm (except 475-500nm).

Product Description

Terbium gallium garnet (TGG) is a kind of high performance magneto-optical crystal in the visible and near infrared spectrum, which is widely used in laser technology, optical communication and optical information processing technology. It has high feld constant, low optical absorption coefficient, high laser damage threshold and good optical properties. These excellent properties make TGG crystal an ideal material for magneto-optical isolator. Crystro could provide φ4 inch TGG boule.

Main Advantages:

Large Verdet Constant (40 Rad T-1 m-1)

Low optical loss (<0.1%/cm)

High thermal conductivity (7.4W m-1K-1).

High laser damage threshold (>1GW/cm2).


Typical application:

Faraday rotator

Optical isolator
