Cesium Lithium Borate (CsLiB6O10,CLBO) is a newly developed crystal with excellent UV nonlinear feature, and widely used for semiconductor inspection, micro processing,bio-medical,UV-LIDAR,etc. Compared to BBO,it has larger spectral and temperature acceptance larger angle tolerance and smaller walk-off angle (see Table 1). These advantages make CLBO obtain larger SHG conversion efficiencies than BBO. Moreover, it is suitable for FOHG and FHG of high-power Nd:YAG laser.
