Casix Doubled its Production Capacity for High Grade Crystals

Casix, a Fabrinet company and manufacturer of high quality crystal and precision optics products, announced today that it has doubled production capacity for its high grade Nd: YVO4 and YVO4 crystals. These crystals are particularly useful in laser and telecom applications as the crystals feature low lasing wavelength absorption and high conversion efficiency.

Casix added equipment, staffing and new automation processes to increase capacity and ensure consistency in higher capacity production for its highly precise, high-quality crystal. ¡§Strong growth in both laser and telecom sectors along with the more global exposure gained by our acquisition by Fabrinet led to demand that was outstripping our ability to supply,¡¨ said Hongbai Lao, vice president of sales and marketing for Casix. ¡§We leveraged Fabrinet¡¦s expertise in production efficiency, made the capital investments necessary to automate more of our control processes and adopted more sophisticated metrology equipment resulting in significantly more capacity for this crystal production.¡¨

The main features for the Nd: YVO4 crystals, available in various sizes and coatings include:

  • Low lasing threshold and high slope efficiency
  • Large stimulated emission cross-section at lasing wavelengths
  • High absorption over a wide pumping wavelength bandwidth
  • Optically uniaxial and large birefringence emits polarized laser light
