Cross Polarized Wave Generation Crystal

The typical optical material used for cross-polarized wave (XPW) generation is Barium Fluoride (BaF2) crystal with z ([001]) or holographic ([011]) crystallographic orientation. Theory predicts a maximum XPW energy conversion efficiency around 35% when using [011]-cut BaF2 crystal with a concomitant pulse shortening factor of √3 corresponding to a pure third-order nonlinear process. EKSMA OPTICS offers [011] orientation BaF2 optical crystals (XPW crystals) for Cross-Polarized Wave (XPW) generation. BaF2 optical crystals with orientation [001] as well CaF2 optical crystals are available on request.
