Laser Rods and Crystals

Laser rods are used as laser media and active media in the generation of a laser beam through stimulated emissions. Non-linear optical (NLO) crystals are used in frequency conversion such as the generation of SHG and THG beams.

Non-linear Crystals

Crystals for frequency multiplication, frequency mixing, and optical parametric sources.

Laser Rods and Crystals

The generation of beams with a double frequency (i.e. half wavelength) or other multiple frequencies is done with so-called nonlinear crystals.

Various crystal materials are available. These materials vary in the wavelength range that can be used, crystal structure, and thermal properties. The most common ones are BBO, LBO, KTP, LiNbO3, KDP, KD*P, RTP and BiB3O6. Our product specialists would be more than happy to assist you when choosing an appropriate crystal for your application.

Typical applications for nonlinear crystals:

  • Frequency multiplication (SHG, THG, …)
  • Frequency mixing (SFM, DFM)
  • Optical parametric oscillators/amplifiers (OPO/OPA)
  • Electro-optical components (Pockels cells, Q-switches)
