Abstract

The properties of large flux grown KTiOPO4 second harmonic generators were measured. A technique which provides a sensitive assessment of crystal uniformity is described. Optically perfect second harmonic generation crystals of up to 1 cm3 were found to have nonlinear optical properties comparable with those grown by other methods. A Q-switched Nd:YAG laser was used to determine temperture acceptance width-length product (20°C · cm), angular acceptance width-length product (13 mrad · cm), and doubling efficiency (50%). Spectral bandwidth (4.5 Å · cm) and wavefront distortion (¼ wave at 633 nm) were also measured. The dependence of these properties on crystal homogeneity is demonstrated.
