LBO Crystal

Lithium Triborate LiB305 or LBO is a newly developed nonlinear optical crystal. It is unique in many aspects, especially its wide transparency range, mechanical properties. Its transmission range is from 0.21>m to 2.3 >m. LBO Crystal allows temperature-controllable non-critical phase-matching(NCPM) for 1.0-1.3/m.Type I SHG and also provides room temperature NCPM for typeII SHG at 0.8-1.1/m. It possesses a relative(dn?0-6/cm) and being free of inclusion Relatively large quality requirements for sours lasers. Features: Broad transparency range from 160nm to 2600nm High optical homogeneity(dn?0-6/cm) and being free of inclusion Relatively large effective SHG coefficient(about three times that of KDP) High damage threshold(18.9GW/cm2 for a 1.3ns laser at 1053nm)Wide acceptance angle and small walk-off Type I and Type II non-critical phase matching(NCPM) in a wide wavelength range Spectral.
