BBO (Beta Barium Borate, β-barium borate or β-BaB2O4)Request for Quotation >
Is a nonlinear crystal that offers several unique and very important characteristics
BBO material is widely recognized for these features:
- Very wide transparency
- Moderately high nonlinear coupling
- High damage threshold
- Good chemical and mechanical properties
BBO phase matches over a wide spectral range, yielding SHG, 3rd, 4th and 5th generation from 190 up to 1780 nm.
OPOs and OPAs based on BBO crystals are powerful tools for generating a widely tunable coherent radiation from the UV to IR.
