Lithium tetraborate (Li2B4O7) crystals for the high-energy fifth-harmonic generation of Nd:YAG lasers

Not Accessible

Efficient nonlinear crystals are key devices for developing ultraviolet light sources. Already various borate crystals, including BBO,1 LiB3O5,2 CBO,3 SBBO,4 and CLBP5 have been reported for UV generation applications. None of these, however, can be a unique solution for the large variety of frequency-conversion applications. Depending on the situation, the required characteristics and crystal size differ significantly. Li2B4O7 is a family of borate crystals, which is popular for SAW devices applications. However, its nonlinear optical properties have been evaluated only in the visible region.6 In this paper, we will report an application of Lithium tetraborate (Li2B4O7) crystals for ultraviolet frequency-conversion including the fifth-harmonic generation of a Nd:YAG laser.
