Lithium fluoride crystal containing F2- color centers (LiF:F2-) is a room temperature stable, with annealing temperature higher than 400 degree(s)C; long lifetime, over ten years; near IR, 0.8 micrometers to 1.2 micrometers saturable absorbing color centers crystal. It could be used to passively Q-switch or mode-lock solid state Nd doped laser systems. What is more, due to the better heat dissipating capability of this crystal compared to the saturable absorber dye sheet with cellulose acetate host, it could be used to passively Q-switch Nd laser systems up to 30 pps repetition rate without any forced cooling.
