Near-infrared Wavelength Dependence of Verdet Constant in Tb2Zr2O7 Transparent Ceramics

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Transparent ceramics are widely developing for optical windows, laser gain mediums, phosphors for the LED lighting, and magneto-optic (MO) applications. In particular, advantages from the glass material or the single crystal of MO ceramics are notable for the high-power lasers from the view point of the large size capability, good thermal properties, and superior magneto-optics properties. Now a day, ceramic technology can realize several kind of cubic oxide materials such as terbium gallium garnet (TGG) [1-4], terbium aluminium garnet (TAG) [5], and sesquioxides [6-8]. In addition of above materials, Tb2Zr2O7 (TZO) transparent ceramics is a new candidate material for the high-power laser application. TZO has a relatively high concentration of Tb3+ ion, a cubic pyrochlore structure, and no intrinsic absorption in the near infrared (NIR) region. To evaluate the potential of this material for the high-power laser application, we have evaluated the near-infrared (NIR) wavelength dependence of Verdet constant in TZO ceramics as the first time.
