CRYSTECH BBO Crystal
BBO is a negative uniaxial crystal with ordinary refractive-index (no) larger than extraordinary refractive-index (ne). Both type I and type II phase-matching can be reached by angle-tuning. BBO is of particular importance in the visible and far UV range.
BBO is hygroscopic. The user is advised to provide dry conditions for both working and storage of BBO.
BBO is relatively soft and therefore requires precautions to protect its polished surfaces.
When angle adjusting is necessary, keep in mind that the acceptance angle of BBO is small.
