Paired BBO Crystals

Paired BBO Crystals
Paired BBO Crystals Paired BBO Crystals

 Two identical Type I SPDC crystals mounted with one crystal rotated by 90o 
   about the axis normal to the crystal face. Two optical axes aligned in
   perpendicular planes.

 Optically contacted structure with no optical cement in the beam path.
 Standard half opening angle between signal/idler: 3o

Pump wavelength range: 248 - 800 nm.
  Common pumps:
   ~ 390 - 415 nm (Diode lasers, Ti:Sapphire lasers)
   ~ 342 - 355 nm (THG of Nd:/Yb: lasers)
~ 257 - 266 nm (4HG of Nd:/Yb: lasers)
 Common aperture sizes: 5x5 mm, 8x8 mm. OD 1" mounted.

Aplication Examples:

 Paired BBO crystals for ultrabright source of polarization-entangled photons
 405nm pumped Paired BBO crystals for Bell inequality test and quantum imaging (ICE)
266nm pumped Paired BBO crystals for quantum microscopy of cells (QMC) at the Heisenberg limit
