1998 (English)In: Applied Optics, ISSN 0003-6935, E-ISSN 1539-4522, Vol. 37, no 30, 7116-7119 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Periodically poled flux-grown KTiOPO4 was used for efficient extracavity 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser frequency doubling. A conversion efficiency exceeding 65% was obtained in Q-switched operation, and 1.34 W of average frequency-doubled power was generated with 2.2 W of mode-locked laser output. The conversion efficiency is approximately two times higher for periodically poled KTP than for conventional type II phase-matched KTP. The measurements indicate that periodically poled KTP is less susceptible to optical damage than type II KTP.
