YCOB crystal has good nonlinear optical properties and high temperature Piezoelectric properties. It is also easy to grow large size crystal with high quality. Compared with LBO (common used in HPL system), it has following advantages: no deliquescence, larger effective NLO susceptibilities, larger temperature acceptance, similar laser induce damage threshold, less parametric luminescence (three orders less), smaller thermal expansion coefficient and less anisotropy, better processability, shorter growth period by Cz method and cheaper to make larger aperture element. YCOB crystal is suitable for applications in high energy and high power laser fields,including SHG, THG, OPO, OPA, OPCPA.


Note: other specs can be fabricated due to customer’s requirements.
