Cesium Lithium Borate (CsLiB6O10, CLBO) is a newly developed crystal with excellent nonlinear UV features. Compared to BBO, it has a higher spectral and temperature acceptance, larger angle tolerance and smaller walk-off angle. The transparency ranges down to 180 nm. These advantages make CLBO a perfect material for UV and deep UV applications, such as semiconductor inspection, micro-processing, bio-medical or UV-LIDAR. To prevent any damage due to CLBO’s sensitivity to moisture, sealed crystal mounts can be provided. These ensure an easy-to-use application and a long lifetime of the crystals.
No matter if individual pieces for R&D purposes are required or cost-efficient numbers in small, medium or large batches with in-time delivery for the production line are needed: GWU’s dedicated service helps to find the best core components for your application.
CLBO Key Features:
• Wide deep-UV transmission down to 180 nm
• Large effective NLO coefficients
• Wide acceptance angle
• Small walk-off
• No saturation effects for high-power UV generation
• Sealed crystal mount available
