Crystals for Stimulated Raman Scattering
EKSMA OPTICS offers crystalline materials: Barium Nitrate (Ba(NO3)2) and undoped potassium gadolinium tungstate (KGd(WO4)2) which have attracted much interest as most suitable crystals for stimulated Raman scattering (SRS). These materials can be used for frequency conversion in lasers for extending of tuning range. SRS in crystals is compatible with current all-solid-state technology and provides a very simple, compact means of frequency conversion.
We can now also offer nominally pure and neodymium doped Barium tungstate, Strontium tungstate and Strontium molybdate single crystals that feature higher Raman gain as compared to KGW or CaCO3 and relatively higher thermal conductivity as compared to a Ba(NO3)2.
For picosecond pulses we offer undoped KGW crystals that feature high damage threshold, making the crystal an excellent candidate for power scaling.

Ba(NO3)2 has the highest Raman gain coefficient among other SRS crystals. However, the thermal lensing is particularly strong.More
