YVO4 Crystals

Product Announcement from Dayoptics, Inc.

YVO4 Crystals -Image

Undoped YVO4 crystal is widely used in many beam displace applications because of its large birefringence. It also has good physical and favorable mechanical properties, compared to other birefringent crystals, which make YVO4 well suited for compact fiber optical components, such as isolators, circulators and interleavers, etc.
