Available as a high purity, very fine ( low micron) powder.
Custom synthesized ytterbium aluminum garnet, YbAG can now be made available in research and initial commercial quantities.
YbAG is an emerging material with potential applications as a solid-state laser host, a scintillator for radiation detection, hard, erosion resistant surface coatings, in particular as thermal spray powders or electron-beam evaporated briquettes for thermal management in high temperature components.
Nano-powders can be supplied in the range 20 – 30nm.
Conventional , micron size, powders are also available on a custom basis.
