Paper Abstract

We describe the most relevant optical properties of BiB3O6 (BIBO), that make this material an attractive candidate for nonlinear frequency conversion of laser light in general, and down-conversion of femtosecond laser sources operating near 800 nm in particular. Experimental results are presented in the high-energy, low-repetition-rate (1 kHz) regime, demonstrating the unique versatility of BIBO for efficient generation of femtosecond pulses in the infrared up to ~3 μm.
