A-Star’s?BBO Nonlinear Crystals Introduction
Lithium triborate (LiB 3 O 5 or LBO) has the following exceptional properties that make
it a very important nonlinear crystal.
Lithium Triborate (LBO) is a nonlinear optical crystal that has several distinctive features. LBO crystal can be used for a variety of nonlinear optical applications.
LBO Nonlinear Crystals Application:
Optical parametric amplifiers(OPA) and oscillators(OPO);
Frequency doubling(SHG) and tripling(THG)
Diode laser pumped Nd:YAG and Nd: YLF laser. Alexandrite, Ti:Sapphire, Dye Lasers, Ultrashort Pulse Lasers
LBO crsytal (Lithium Tri-borate) is one of the most useful nonlinear optical material not just for its relatively large conversion coefficient – 3x that of KDP, but also for its excellent physical propertie

Lithium Triborate LiB3O5 or LBO is a newly developed nonlinear optical crystal. It is unique in many aspects, especially its wide transparency range, moderately high nonlinear coupling, high damage threshold and good chemical and mechanical properties. Its transmission range is from 0.21 μm to 2.3 μm. LBO allows temperature-controllable non-critical phase-matching (NCPM) for 1.0-1.3 μm, Type I SHG, and also provides room temperature NCPM for Type II SHG at 0.8-1.1 μm.
