Lithium Triborate(LBO, LiB3O5)
Lithium Triborate is newly developed nonlinear optical crystal. It is unique in many aspects, especially its high damage threshold, large phase matching acceptance angle and wide transparent range. So it is particularly useful for making doubler or tripler for such as Nd:YAG lasers where high power density, high stability, and long time operation are required. It is a ideal nonlinear optical crystal used in laser weapon, welder, radar, tracker, surgery, communication, and etc.
Frequency doublers or blanks with dimensions ( 3 - 20 ) x ( 3 - 20 ) x ( 3 -
20 ) mm3 or larger are available.
