Welcome to SnakeCreek Lasers


Diode-Pumped Solid-State Laser Products:

Snake Creek Lasers is a developer and manufacturer of miniature solid-state lasers, OEM modules, laser dazzlers and flashlights, and high power room temperature and cryogenic solid-state lasers. Our lasers are used in dozens of diverse applications worldwide. We also collaborate with commercial and government entities to provide rapid laser engineering and prototyping services. 

Custom Laser Solutions:

Snake Creek lasers has provided custom laser solutions to many organizations, including CW, long-pulse, Q-switched, and ultrafast lasers operating from the UV to the mid-IR. These systems utilize a  number of crystalline laser hosts, including Nd:YAG, Nd:YVO4, Yb:YAG, Yb:Lu2O3, Yb:LuAG, Ho:YAG, Ti:Al2O3, Cr:BeAl2O4, nonlinear crystals such as KTP, BBO, BiBO, LBO, KBBF, and RBBF,  and other materials such as Cr4+:YAG and Sm:YAG. We encourage any organizations interested in developing compact custom diode-pumped solid-state lasers or modules to contact us. We routinely work with customers on a proprietary basis.


Laser Materials and Spectroscopic Measurements:

Our company has a robust research and development program and several collaborations in place to investigate and develop new laser and nonlinear materials. We are able to provide high resolution absorption and emission spectroscopy spanning the spectral region from about 170 nm to 3000 nm. Measurements can be performed from room temperature to 77 K. We have enjoyed a collaboration with Clemson University for over five years, and together we have investigated many hydrothermally-grown laser materials such as Nd:YAG, Nd:LuAG, Yb:YAG, Yb:LuAG, Yb:Lu2O3, Yb:Sc2O3, Yb:Y2O3, Cr,Nd:YAG, Cr,Yb:YAG, Ho:YAG, Ho:Lu2O3, Er:YAG, Er:Lu2O3, Er:Sc2O3, Er:Y2O3, and many others. We have also pioneered the method of epitaxial hydrothermal growth of a Sm:YAG cladding layer on Nd:YAG rods for suppressing parasitics and amplified-spontaneous-emission (ASE). Please visit the References section of our Technology page for additional information.

Snake Creek Lasers welcomes any inquiries regarding laser materials collaborations. We can also provide routine quality-control spectral absorption scans of laser and optical materials (coated or uncoated) on a proprietary, contract basis.
