BNA Organic crystal

Application 1: Intense non-linear spectroscopy 

Comparison with conventional ZnTe sources

Application 2: Broadband linear spectroscopy

Comparison with conventional Lithium Niobate sources

Application 3: X-ray streaking camera

BNA spectrum provides 5 times better streaking resolution than Lithium Niobate presently employed in all X-ray streaking cameras.
