Abstract

Applications of lithium niobate in nonlinear optics at high light intensities are seriously hampered by optical damage. Recent investigations have shown that Hf 4 + and Zr 4 + ions have some advantages in suppressing optical damage of Li Nb O 3 with respect to Mg 2 + . Here we present Sn-doped Li Nb O 3 (Sn:LN). Experimental results indicate that Sn:LN has similar optical damage resistance to Mg-doped Li Nb O 3 , but the doping threshold of Sn is only 2.5 ‚ÄČ mol. % , where its distribution coefficient is 0.98. Hence Sn 4 + ion turns out to be another good choice for increasing optical damage resistance of Li Nb O 3 .
