Growth of low-loss, single-crystal YAG fiber optics

Craig D. Nie, Subhabrata Bera

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Single-crystal YAG fibers have been grown by the laser heated pedestal growth technique with losses as low as 0.3 dB/m at 1.06 μm. Scattering losses comprise about 30% of the total loss.
