LBO Crystals

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Altechna


Description :

Lithium Triborate LBOs high damage threshold, wide acceptance angle, good thermal stability and wide transmission range make it ideal for frequency doubling of high power lasers. It is unique in many aspects, especially its wide transparency range, moderately high non-linear coupling, high damage threshold and good chemical and mechanical properties. Its transmission range is from 0.16m to 2.6m.
LBO allows temperature-controllable non-critical phase-matching (NCPM) for 1.0-1.3 m, Type I SHG, and also provides room temperature NCPM for Type II SHG at 0.8-1.1 m. It possesses a relatively large angular acceptance bandwidth, reducing the beam quality requirements for source lasers.
