Lithium tantalate (LiTaO3, LT) crystal is an important ferroelectric material. It has both chemical and mechanical stability as well as a high optical damage threshold. Lithium tantalate exhibits unique electro-optical, pyroelectric and piezoelectric properties combined with good mechanical and chemical stability and wide transparency range and high optical damage threshold. This makes LiTaO3 well-suited for numerous applications including electro-optical modulators, pyroelectric detectors, optical waveguide and SAW substrates, piezoelectric transducers etc.
Lithium tantalate crystal it has excellent piezoelectric electromechanical coupling coefficient, low loss, and high temperature stability, and good high-frequency performance, electro-optical and thermoelectric properties. With the rapid development of communications, information industry development and industrialization of new optoelectronic materials, downstream demand for lithium tantalate crystal keeps increasing.
At present, in developed countries, the lithium tantalate crystal industry is generally at a more advanced level. The world's large enterprises are mainly concentrated in Japan. Meanwhile, foreign companies have more advanced equipment, strong R & D capability, and leading technical level. However, foreign companies’ manufacturing cost is relatively higher, compared with Chinese companies. With the development of Chinese lithium tantalate crystal production technology, their share in the international market is increasing, and competitiveness in the international market gradually increases.
Lithium tantalite (LiTaO3) is similar to lithium niobate. Both are grown by the czochralski method which yields large, high quality single crystals. Lithium tantalate possesses unique electro-optical, acoustic, piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, which makes it attractive for numerous applications including electro-optical modulators, pyroelectric detectors, piezoelectric transducers and sensors. It has good mechanical and chemical stability, a wide transparency range and a high optical damage threshold. With the development of 4G LTE, the demand for saw filter will keep on growing in the future, which will promote the demand for lithium tantalate crystal.
