PPLN Heritage

Covesion researches, develops and manufactures magnesium doped, periodically poled lithium niobate (MgO:PPLN) crystals and waveguides for highly efficiency non-linear frequency conversion.

Established in 2009 as a spin-out company from the University of Southampton, Covesion is now privately owned.

We have an unrivalled international reputation for our products, built upon our team’s many years’ experience in the manufacture of PPLN frequency conversion products, selling to both R&D and OEM customers. We stock crystals and waveguides as well as designing and manufacturing custom chips for specific customer applications.
