LASER COMPONENTS has offered a range of non-linear optical crystals, including Lithium Niobate. LiNbO3 crystals are used most commonly as frequency doublers for laser applications. This artificially created crystal has a large electro-optic and acousto-optic coefficient, and as such it is a favoured material for a number of non-linear applications; Q-switches, Pockels cells, phase modulators and waveguides.
LASER COMPONENTS can provide large lithium niobate crystals, with apertures up to 15mm x 15mm and lengths up to 50mm and has the capability to fulfil high volume orders.
Varying grades are available, from commercial qualities optimised for more favourable pricing and higher volumes to precision grades with more accurate orientation and perpendicularity, and better surface quality.
Custom sizes and specifications are available upon request.
