YAG is the single crystal Y3Al5O12 (Ytterium Aluminum Garnet) and one of the hardest and most durable materials. Pure YAG crystal has a good transmission from UV to IR and high chemical resistance and thermal conductivity. The mechanical and chemical stability of YAG is comparable to sapphire crystal, but YAG is unique with no birefringence and available with higher optical homogeneity and surface quality.  Recently, YAG is commonly used for femtosecond white light (continuum) generation.

Application examples:

Continuum generation in YAG crystal pumped by ~ 800 nm
 Continuum generation in MIR ~ 4.5 um from YAG pumped by 3100 nm
