Covesion researches, develops, and manufactures magnesium doped, periodically poled lithium niobate (MgO:PPLN) crystals and waveguides for highly efficient non-linear frequency conversion.

Founded as an independent company in 2009 from a University of Southampton spin out (Stratophase Limited) our poling experts are world leaders in the commercial production of PPLN solutions for off-the-shelf, R&D, and OEM customers.

MgO:PPLN is ideal for cutting-edge laser applications due to its high effective nonlinear coefficient; allowing for high efficiency frequency conversion across multiple different mechanisms. MgO:PPLN supports a wide range of applications including: frequency doubling of femtosecond lasers; mid-infrared generation; atom cooling; terahertz generation; and biomedical imaging. 

The addition of MgO:PPLN waveguides to the Covesion product range allows our customers to exploit greater conversion efficiencies and save on unnecessary pump sources within their applications. 

Off-the-shelf crystals and waveguides are available for SHG, DFG, OPO, and SFG interactions. Covesion also manufactures a range of ovens and a temperature controller for precision thermal management.

Covesion’s custom design and fabrication service provides application-specific technical consultation with specialist grating design and contract manufacture. A range of custom design packages are available for one-off crystals, OEM prototyping and large-volume manufacture.

With over 20 years of experience and technical knowledge, the team of engineers at Covesion are perfectly placed to provide you with the support you need for designing a system to generate visible and IR light. Covesion offer advice on all aspects of PPLN technology, from crystal length to optical mounting, aiming to deliver the ideal MgO:PPLN system for your application.
