KTA Crystal

KTA crystalKTA(Potassium Titanyle Arsenate, KTiOAsO4) is an excellent nonlinear optical crystal for Optical Parametric Oscillation (OPO) application. It has better non-linear optical and electro-optical coefficients, significantly reduced absorption in the 2.0-5.0 µm region, broad angular and temperature bandwidth, low dielectric constants. And its low ionic conductivities result in higher damage threshold compared with KTP .

Bluebean Optical offers KTA:

- Crystal length from 0.1mm to 30mm and aperture up to 15x15mm

- AR-coating for VIS-IR and mid IR ranges

- Re-polishing and re-coating service

- Standard and customized mounts and housings
