Paper Abstract

Borate crystals posses excellent properties such as high damage threshold, high optical quality, high transparency far in the ultraviolet and good chemical stability. They find many applications as non-linear optical (NLO) materials in second harmonic generation (SHG), optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) and self-frequency doubling lasers. Borate anions exist in many structural types what allows to choose an appropriate material for specific applications. Crystal growth of borates by the Czochralski technique and top seeded solution growth (TSSG) has been discussed.
