VLOC grows Nd:YLF crystals using the Czochralski technique. The use of high quality starting materials for crystal growth, whole boule interferometry, and precise measurement of bulk losses using transmission spectroscopy assures that each crystal will perform to customer specifications. Each rod is inspected with a HeNe laser to be free of bubbles and inclusions. Full documentation is available for every shipment, and VLOC maintains traceability on all material produced, from finished laser material back to starting chemicals. State-of-the-art fabrication and coating processes enable VLOC to provide consistently reliable finished product.
