Large scale hydrothermal growth of KTP and KTA

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


KTP is a highly efficient nonlinear optical material which has been incorporated into several commercial and military laser systems. Hydrothermally grown KTP has proven to be a superior performer in these devices. The major shortcoming of this material has been large size availability. Requirements for larger apertures and increased interaction lengths have made it increasingly difficult to obtain hydrothermally grown material to satisfy these needs. Flux grown KTP can attain sizes large enough for these applications, but exhibits lower optical damage thresholds.
