The CLF requires a set of LBO Crystals for OPA Amplification for the TAP Beamline Project. These are the primary amplification media for the TAP Beamline project. They would look like a piece of glass, but the particular characteristics of LBO enable the transfer of energy from an almost co-linear pump beam to the seed beam.

Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement. All attachments can be found in the RFx attachments tab within the Emptoris System. This contract will be awarded based on the evaluation criteria set out in the RFP Document.
