Our quality is
the difference.

At Scientific Materials Corp. (SMC) we provide a complete line of high-purity low-loss laser materials. SMC’s research has led to numerous discoveries resulting in laser materials that have demonstrated increased efficiency, increased output power, increased damage resistance, reduced thermal lensing, higher brightness, and higher TEM00 output. We offer custom manufacturing of laser rods, slabs, discs, passive q-switches & YAG optics, for your high volume production quantities, or low volume development efforts.

WHAT'S NEW AT SMC
