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.
