LBO crystal (Lithium Triborate - LiB3O5)

LBO (Lithium Triborate - LiB3O5) is popularly used material for Second Harmonic
Generation (SHG) of 1064nm high power lasers (as a substitute to KTP) and Sum Frequency Generation (SFG) of 1064nm laser source to achieve UV light at 355nm. It also has the advantage to be used in Non Critical Phase-Matching configuration (no walk-off) at certain temperatures (around 150°C for SHG of 1064nm). We can provide LBO crystals with apertures of several cm². LBO crystal has a wide transparency range, moderately high nonlinear coupling, high damage threshold and desirable chemical and mechanical properties.
