Lithium Tetraborate
Non-linear organic single crystal 3-Methyl-4-Nitropyridine-1-Oxide (C6H6O3N2 or POM). The experimental data evidences that POM is a promising material for a pico- and femtosecond optics in the near IR: non-linear optical coefficient 15 times higher than that of KDP, small phase matching hall width (5 angular min /cm) and dispersion (0.5 angular min A). POM is biaxial positive crystal: 2V = 69 at 532 nm.

APPLICATIONS:
• Second harmonic generation from low-energy and diode lasers with wavelength of 1.06, 1.30 and 1.55 µm fundamental      radiation
• Parametric amplification and light generation in the range of 0.8 - 2.0 µm
• Correlation measurement of ultra-short laser pulse duration
