IPG has developed unique fabrication processes for the LBO crystalline
laser optical elements. Now we offer these elements commercially
to OEM external customers.
Crystal growth process we employ for LBO material is unparalleled.
We grow structurally perfect large boules without any bulk defects,
striations or inclusions. In addition, our boules have very low
dislocation density and some material is completely dislocation free.
Our oversized boules enable us making especially large
optical elements. We can offer non-linear optical LBO
elements up to 100 mm long or 100x100 mm2
cross-sections. Our highly effective growth
process allows us to offer this material
at a very competitive price.
