Nanosecond laser induced damage thresholds in KTiOPO4 and Rb:KTiOPO4 at 1 µm and 2 µm
2015 (English)In: Optical Materials Express, ISSN 2159-3930, E-ISSN 2159-3930, Vol. 5, no 9, 2090-2095 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Optimum design of high-energy cascaded parametric down-conversion schemes from 1 μm requires accurate knowledge of the laser induced damage threshold (LIDT) of the nonlinear crystal employed. We report surface LIDT measurements in KTiOPO4 (KTP) and Rb:KTP (RKTP) with nanosecond pulses at 1.064 μm and 2.1 μm. LIDT results for nanosecond pulses at 2 μm for KTP and RKTP have not been previously reported to the best of our knowledge.
