Abstract

High optical quality (Tb(1x)Cex)3Ga5O12 (TCGG) single crystal has been grown by the Czochralski method. The optical and magneto-optical properties of the TCGG are analyzed in detail and the Verdet constant (V) of TCGG is compared with that of undoped terbium gallium garnet (TGG) crystal. TCGG presents a very high transmittance, particularly in the visible-near infrared (VIS–NIR) region, and its V is obviously larger than that of TGG in the VIS–NIR region. The figure of merit and optical features point out the superior characteristics of TCGG with respect to TGG.
