Dopped Lithium Niobate Crystal

Lithium oxide crystal (IN) is an excellent ferroelectric crystal, and electro-optic crystal and nonlinear optical crystal. Pure LN has the disadvantages of being susceptible to light damage and low recording sensitivity when used as a total recording material. For this, people use doping methods to change or improve the performance of LN. 
Mainly doped transition elements, such as Fe, Zn, Mn, Cr and rare elements, such as Tm, Er, Eu, Nd, etc., Mg are also often used as dopants.

Through the transformation of the growth equipment, the self-created simulated crystal growth system (CSCGS) can design the crystal shape according to the needs, and the microcomputer chip controls the crystal shape change according to the crystal growth state and the processing of the precise sensor signal. A set of gradient composite temperature field structure (GCT) is independently designed, so that the temperature gradient in the crystal, in the melt and on the solid-liquid interface reaches the excellent state of growing optical crystals, which greatly improves the optical uniformity of LN
