Welcome to Union Optic!



BBO (beta-BaB2O4 ) is a nonlinear optical crystal which combines a number of unique features. These features include wide transparency and phase matching ranges, large nonlinear coefficient, high damage threshold and excellent optical homogeneity. Therefore, BBO provides an attractive solution for various nonlinear optical applications.

BBO crystal is also an excellent electro-optic crystal for high power applications at the wavelength range from 200nm to 2500nm. It can be used for Q-Switching in a CW diode pumped Nd:YAG laser with average power>50W.
