Popularity of lithium tantalate crystal in acoustic resonator filters of high bandwidths has skyrocketed in the recent past.
Evana Technologies presents FREEZER series compact ultrashort laser pulse optical engines and technologies for hard and brittle material wafer scribing: silicon carbide, gallium nitride, sapphire, quartz, lithium niobate, lithium tantalate and the other material wafers for microelectronics and photonics industries.
Their beneficial properties, such as high signalto-noise ratio, very low drift effects and high sensitivity over a wide spectral range, make these linear arrays based on lithium tantalate particularly attractive.

(21) The tuning range for LiNb[O.sub.3] and KTP was found to be in the order of few micrometers whereas KTN (potassium tantalate niobate) using the quadratic electro-optic effect is expected to show scanning range of tens of micrometers.
Using a space-charge-controlled KTN beam deflector -- a kind of crystal made of potassium tantalate and potassium niobate -- with a large electro-optic effect, researchers have found that scanning at a much higher speed is possible.
