NLO selection questionnaire - Nonlinear Optics
Gooch & Housego has considerable experience in the design and production of crystals for nonlinear frequency conversion applications from the deep UV to the far IR. A wide selection of materials, including, but not limited to ADP, BBO, KDP and KD*P are available. Several proprietary software routines enable us to supply "optimized" crystals, which allow you to get the best possible performance from your system. Crystals as large as approximately 42 cm square for ICF applications and as small as a few mm in cross section for microchip laser applications are routinely produced. Special geometrical shapes include thin plates, having 200:1 diameter to thickness ratio with diameters as large as 160mm and plates as thin as 400µm for femtosecond-pulse-duration applications. Brewster-cut bars are supplied for low-loss intra-cavity laser applications. Our combined capabilities of crystal growth, device design and assembly, optical fabrication, AR coating, and performance testing result in products with superior performance.
