Nonlinear Optical Crystals
Non-linear Crystals have extended the laser spectrum from deep UV to far IR by various harmonic generations, sum frequency generations (SFG), difference frequency generations (DFG), optical parametric oscillators (OPO), etc.
SIMTRUM offers the most common non-linear optical crystals. We also provided a tutorial for choosing the right Non-linear Crystals. In general, you may need to consider the following factors before ordering your crystal:
Crystal transparency at the targeted wavelength, Phase matching, damage threshold, conversion efficiency, combability with your experiment environment. Please refer to our tutorial for more information.
