Electro-Optic (EO) Crystals and Acousto-Optic (AO) Crystals

Electro-optic crystals has a linear electro-optic effect called Pockels effect, which means the refractive index of the crystals is changed in proportion to the voltage applied to it. This kind of crystal materials are often used to make the pockels cells, the most common one are potassium di-deuterium phosphate (DKDP), β-barium borate (BBO), lithium niobate (LiNbO3), lithium tantalate (LiTaO3) and potassium titanium oxide phosphate (KTP). And accordingly, acousto-optic effects are based on the change of the refractive index of a medium due to the presence of sound waves in that medium, and Tellurium Dioxide (TeO2) crystals one of  the most popular acousto-optic crystals used in laser applications. 

Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the off-the-shelf and custom electro-optic and acousto-optic crystals for EO and AO pockels cells, they are made from high quality crystals with high precision polishing, coating and Cr-Au electrode, a variety of substrate materials are available: DKDP, BBO, LiNbO3, MgO:LiNbO3, TeO2 and HGTR-KTP crystals.
