Chromium trioxide is the inorganic compound with the formula CrO3. It is the acid anhydride of chromic acid, and is sometimes marketed under the same name. This compound is a dark red/orange brown solid, which dissolves in water concomitant with hydrolysis. Millions of kilograms are produced annually, mainly for electroplating.
Lithium triborate (LiB3O5) LBO is a non-linear optics crystal. It has a wide transparency range, moderately high nonlinear coupling, high damage threshold and desirable chemical and mechanical properties. This crystal is often used for second harmonic generation (SHG, also known as frequency doubling) of Nd:YAG lasers (1064 nm → 532 nm). LBO can be both critically and non-critically phase-matched. In the latter case the crystal has to be heated or cooled depending on the wavelength.
It has chemical formula BNi3.
