Laser Glass

L3 Kigre manufactures components for customized "plug-in" applications. Kigre's plug-in components find their way into end products ranging from the medical industry to industrial tool, research and military applications.

Specialty Glass Products Available

A neodymium-doped athermal phosphate laser glass of exceptional optical quality offering high gain and athermal behavior. The result is a higher repetition rate with minimum beam divergence.

Patented use in applications where the highest possible gain is desired. The superior performance of this neodymium-doped athermal phosphate glass results from its uniquely high Neodymium concentration.

A neodymium-doped silicate laser glass known for its strength and durability. It is the laser glass of choice for a wide range of applications from range-finding to materials processing.

QE-7 & QE-7s
Erbium-doped phosphate laser glass that is four times more efficient than the erbium-doped silicate laser glass developed in the 1960s. Its unique "eye-safe" operating wavelength of 1.535 microns makes it ideal for specialized medical apparatus as well as field-safe range-finding.

QX/Nd, QX/Er and QX/Yb
QX Phosphate glass laser materials exhibit a chemical durability that is comparable to silicate glasses. These high-performance laser glasses are designed to withstand high thermal loading and thermal shock conditions in both strengthened and unstrengthened configurations.

IR Glass
Germanate IR transmitting glass window/laser material L3 Kigre's BGA and NRL BGG glass materials exhibit high optical transmission in a wide window region from the visible (~ 450nm) through the infrared to ~ 5μm. L3 Kigre has demonstrated a tunable 2.09 micron BGA glass laser doped with holmium and other rare-earth sensitizers.

Special Melting Facility
L3 Kigre's "Special Melts" are manufactured to customer-specified dopant concentrations. Various base materials for your Special Melt host glass are available from an extensive menu. Let our technical people help you select a glass laser material specifically designed for your application.
