(LiIO3) crystal is an uniaxial non-linear crystal with
high non-linear optical coefficients and wide transparency range. It
is used for frequency doubling of the low and medium power Ti:Sapphire,
Alexandrite and other lasers. In some cases it is used for frequency
doubling and -tripling of Nd:YAG lasers and auto-correlators to measure
ultra-short pulse width.
From the second to forth harmonic generations of
the fundamental laser emission in the range from 690 to 2000 nm
Optical parametric oscillation, obtaining of the tuned radiation in the ranges from 800 to 4000 nm
Frequency multiplication and mixing in transparency crystal range from 280 to 5500 nm
Measurement of parameters of ultra-short laser pulses
including the single ones
Visualisation of IR radiation to obtain the object image by non-linear optical methods

The surfaces of LiIO3 crystals can be easily moistened.
Customers should be very careful in the maintenance of crystal surfaces.
The sealed housing is recommended for these crystals.
