YEREVAN. – Armenian crystals for lasers are being tested in France, at a layout of NPP with cold thermonuclear fusion, Samvel Gyulbudaghyan, representative of CJSC Laser Technology, told Armenian News-NEWS.am.

Crystals had already been patented in the United States. Each of them allows to get several tens of kilowatts of laser power in the synthesis reaction using low temperatures.

A layout of a nuclear power plant has been built in France to test similar reactions.

If it turns out that it is possible to have a desired laser power, the orders can increase, as one station may require about 500 crystals.

Know-how of the Armenian engineers is synthetic crystals of yttrium-aluminum garnet (YAG) activated by ytterbium elements. The company uses the Soviet method of getting crystals enabling to have crystals of the desired size and purity. The laser can get more power for the necessary reaction.

“We are also growing crystals activated by other rare metals, for example, neodymium. They have a great demand abroad, because laser technology is gradually becoming more widespread from medicine to engineering,” the engineer said.
