CY0495 Beta-barium Borate (BBO) Maximize

CY0495 Beta-barium Borate (BBO)

Catalog No.CY0495
Surface Quality10/5 scratch/dig per MIL-O-13830A
Perpendicularity 5 arc minutes

Beta-barium Borate (BBO) is a very important nonlinear crystal because of the broad phase-matching range and useful optical transmission. It has a high damage threshold, wide temperature-bandwidth, and low thermo-optic coefficient. BBO can be widely used in medical, military and meteorology fields.
