Lithium niobate pyramid LiNbO3

Nonlinear lithium niobate LN crystals are widely used as frequency doublers for wavelength larger than 1000 µm, as optical parametric oscillators pumped at the wavelength of 1064nm and quasi passagemaking devices. Due to its unique electro-optical, photoelastic, piezoelectric and nonlinear properties of the nonlinear crystals lithium niobate
Crystals are grown by the Czochralski method, and is polarized along the Z-axis.
