SPINEL (MgAl2O4:Co2+)

Spinel crystal (MgAl2O4:Co2+) appears to be one of the most effective materials for passive laser shutters operating at l=1,3mm and l=1,55mm. The crystals with high optical quality and Co uniform distribution along crystal diameter and length are grown by Czochralski technique.
