Abstract

Diffusion bonded (DB) walk-off compensated KTP crystals offer an alternative nonlinear medium for efficient 1   to   2   μm conversion within optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) at low pulse energies. Spatial variations in optical absorption and transmission values measured at 2   μm are reported for two DB-KTP crystals. Finally, a comparison is made between the conversion efficiency obtained from a degenerate 1 μm pumped OPO using a single 20   mm KTP crystal and an equivalent length DB-KTP crystal consisting of two bonded 10 mm crystals.
