CLBO - Cesium Lithium Borate

CLBO is  crystal of choice for harmonic generation in the UV range with a transmission cut-off edge reaching 180 nm. Compared to BBO it features larger spectral and better angle tolerance etc.



We offer:

♦ Size and angle can be customized

♦ Coating can be made according to customer requirements

♦ High quality with quality assurance

Note: CLBO is easy to deliquescence, please use and store it in a dry environment.

Main features:                                                                                                 

♦ Large receiving angle, small discrete angle                                                                

♦ Maximum FOHG and FIHG conversion efficiencies of Nd doped laser;                   

♦ Effective nonlinear optical coefficient (about twice the KDP)                                    

♦ Due to the short growth period, large-sized crystals can be grown                             

♦ The conversion efficiency of the quadruple frequency and the frequency quintuple of the Nd:YAG laser is high                            

♦ VUV light output at 193 nm can be obtained by phase matching    

Typical applications:   

♦ All-solid-state UV laser

♦ Semiconductor inspection

♦ Optical Parametric Oscillator

♦ PCB drilling
