The supply chain is a system between a company and its suppliers to manufacture and distribute particular products to the final buyers. This system includes different activities, information, entities, people, and resources. The manufacturing process of Nd: YAG crystals is a complex and precise procedure that involves the following steps such as preparation of high-purity starting materials, growth of single-crystal ingots using the czochralski method, slicing and polishing of the ingots into thin wafers or rods, and coating of the crystal surfaces with anti-reflection or high-reflection layers. Overall, the manufacturing and processing of Nd: YAG crystals require careful control of the materials, the melting and cooling process, and the post-processing steps, such as slicing and polishing.
