BBO is one of the electro-optic material choices for high average power E-O Q Switch applications. BBO has significant advantages over other materials in terms of laser power handling abilities, temperature stability, and substantial freedom from piezoelectric ringing. Because it relies on the electro optic effect, switching time - aided by the low capacitance of the E-O Q Switch is very fast. The wide transparency range of BBO allows it to be used in diverse applications. 
High repetition rate and damage resistance 
Low absorption and acoustic noise 
UV transmission

Application Notes:

  1. High repetition rate DPSS Q-Switchs
  2. High repetition rate regenerative amplifier control
  3. Cavity dumping
  4. Beam chopper
