Single Crystal Types and Application

Scintillator: Includes lutetium oxyorthosilicate (Lu2SiO5, LSO), yttrium oxyorthosilicate (Y2SiO5, YSO) , and lutetium–yttrium oxyorthosilicate (Lu2-2xY2xSiO5, LYSO)。 Scintillation crystals can detect high-energy particles and are mainly used in Positron Emission Tomography, high-energy physics experiments, nuclear physics experiments, oil well exploration and safety inspections.


Fluorescent crystal: Include cerium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Ce3xY3-3xAl5O12, Ce:YAG) and cerium-doped lutetium aluminum garnet (Ce3xLu3-3xAl5O12, Ce:LuAG). It can be applied for high-power laser lighting.



Laser Crystal: Include neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd3xY3-3xAl5O12, Nd:YAG, x=0~3%), Ytterbium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Yb3xY3-3xAl5O12,Yb:YAG, X=0~3%) . It can be used for gain medium in solid-state lasers.


Crystals for Gallium nitride (GaN) epitaxial substrate: Include sapphire (c-Al2O3), lithium aluminate (LiAlO2), lithium gallate (LiGaO2), etc.
