Our PPLN calculator can help you choose the best PPLN crystal for your application.
Your PPLN crystal should be chosen to best match the operating conditions of your system. The most important factors to consider are
the nonlinear process (SHG, OPO, etc.), the interacting wavelengths, and the crystal operating temperature, as these will define the required
grating period. Similarly, the grating length is determined by the spectral bandwidth and temporal walk-off of the interacting wavelengths,
particularly in short pulse systems.
To help you choose the best crystal for your system, a PPLN calculator is provided below.
