Abstract

We report on the results of proton and gamma irradiation tests performed on nonlinear crystals for second- (SHG) and third-harmonic generation. β-barium borate (BBO), lithium triborate (LBO), and KTP crystals were exposed to three different energies of proton radiation (8, 70, and 300 MeV) and incremental doses of gamma radiation (up to 139 krad) in order to investigate the change in SHG performance and transmission spectra. BBO and LBO crystals turned out to be a suitable choice for SHG under radiative conditions.
