BBO Crystal

BBO crystal has large birefringence over the brad transparent range from 189-3500nm, the high damage threshold and stable physical, chemical properties. So it is an excellent crystal to replace Calcite, TiO2, and LiNbO3, etc. in Glan prisms and displacers for high power and UV wavelength applications. The different dimensions BBO prisms are available from Sinoceramics.
