LBO for SHG (Second Harmonic Generation)

LBO (Lithium troborae or LiB3O5) Is a nonlinear crystal that offers several unique and very important characteristics

LBO material is widely recognized for these features:

  • Wide transparency range (160 nm – 2600 nm)
  • Moderately nonlinear coupling
  • High damage threshold
  • Good chemical and mechanical properties
  • For type I SHG of 1000 nm – 1300 nm is free of walk off limitations
  • Free of gray track effect

Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) is a nonlinear optical process whereby the pumping wavelength generates a new wavelength that is half of the input wavelength or double frequency.
